Turn to Us to Assist With Your Long Term Care Insurance Disputes
The average 65-year-old is expected to require three years of long-term care, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. To cover the cost of that care, many people have purchased long term care insurance. Unfortunately, accessing the benefits you contracted and paid for is not always a straightforward process. If you have concerns about getting compensation from long-term care insurance, we can help you.
At Wrobel & Smith, PLLP, our experienced attorneys handle a wide range of insurance disputes. We can help you plan for the process of obtaining long term coverage. We are also here to help if you have already begun the process and are now fighting with the insurance company for the benefits you deserve. Our goal is to make sure you get the benefits you have paid for through proper planning and, if necessary, through litigation.
Long Term Care Planning Assistance
A shared room in a nursing facility carries an estimated cost of $75,000 per year. Long term care insurance operates as a reimbursed claim. That means you must receive the care before you can seek payment. If your claim is denied, you can be left on the hook for a hefty sum of money. That uncertainty is terrifying for many.
By planning ahead, you can reduce the chances of a bad result. By consulting with us in advance, you can make better choices to protect your future.
