Long Term Care Insurance Q & As

Question 1 of 9 in How Much Does It Cost
How are premiums calculated?
This depends on a variety of factors, including geography, level of care needed, and the setting in which care is provided. Nursing homes are the most costly -- as much as $150 per day. That amounts to about $55,000 per year. Daily skilled care performed in your home by a visiting nurse might cost about half of that.
