Long-term care refers to a broad range of medical and personal care services designed to assist individuals who have lost their ability to perform activities of daily living without assistance. In such cases, long-term care insurance provides coverage for both medical and non-medical services provided in a patient's home, a nursing home, or an assisted living facility. Unlike Medicare or most private health insurance plans, which pay primarily for hospital stays or doctor visits, long-term care helps pay for the cost involved in providing assistance with activities of daily living.
