Exceptions/Exclusions

Quick Answer

All Long-Term Care Insurance policies specify certain situations in which they will not pay benefits. These usually include care which is required as a result of an act of war, care required as a result of an intentionally self-inflicted injury, and care required as a result of alcoholism or drug addiction. Every insurance company has its own exclusions but they tend to be very limited and well defined.
