A record $13.25 billion was paid out to policyholders by long-term care insurance companies in 2022, according to new numbers out last week from the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). That is in comparison to $12.3 billion in 2021 and $11.6 billion in 2020. AALTCI says benefits were paid to about 345,000 policyholders last year, an increase from 336,000 claimants in 2021 and 325,000 in 2020. The reported amounts represent claims for those owning traditional, stand-alone long-term care insurance, according to AALTCI. The Association says LTCi benefits are “mostly paid to individuals receiving benefits for qualifying care in their own home or in an assisted living facility.” For more information on this and other AALTCI reports, visit the Association’s website.
