Medico Long-Term Care

Medico only offers a limited benefit plan which is not a traditional long-term care policy. However, it can provide a solution for some people. There are differences between the policy language and benefits between companies that offer Long-Term Care Insurance although the major benefit options are similar. However key differences do exist. It is important to know and understand the differences between Medico and other companies.

Medico offers a limited duration plan with expanded underwriting guidelines compared to policies offered by traditional long-term care insurance companies. They market these plans as an affordable solution for people with limited underwriting. This includes those people who may be older and outside the age ranges of traditional plans. The policy can also be added to an older existing long-term care policy to provide additional benefits at a lower cost.

The Medico plan includes a number of features:

  • Comprehensive – includes benefits for all areas of care
  • Daily Benefit from $100 to $300 a day
  • Inflation Benefit of 5% Simple
  • Benefit Periods from 120 day to 360 days
  • Elimination Periods of 0, 15, and 30 days
  • Bed Reservation Benefit
  • Hospice

Since the Medico policy is not a traditional long-term care policy it does not certify as a partnership policy under state and federal law.
