Episode Description

Bob Burke is an expert in how to pick the best long-term care insurance policy. Many Americans are not aware that Medicare, Social Security, and health insurance do not pay for long-term health care needs, either in the home or in an assisted living facility or nursing home. Medicaid is increasingly difficult to qualify for, and is only available to the truly indigent. Instead of relying on government programs, the solution is to get a long-term care insurance policy that will pay these costs for many years once you are no longer able to take care of yourself and need a health care aide. In this interview, Bob Burke goes through all of the ins and outs of buying the right long term care policy for your needs and budget.
