Home Care Expenditures Growing Reports Long-Term Care Insurance Association

Los Angeles, CA, December 23, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Over $113 Billion was spent on home care services in 2019; a significant increase over prior years reports the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI).

"As millions of Americans age and require support services, they prefer to receive care in their own home," explains Jesse Slome, director of the long-term care insurance organization. "As a result, expenditures for home care services reached a new high in 2019."

The Association director was sharing the latest information with specialists who market long-term care insurance protection. "Home care expenditures grew by 7.7 percent in 2019 compared to the prior year," he adds. According to Slome while a significant portion of home care services are paid for by Medicare and Medicaid, the poverty program, individual out-of-pocket costs can impact an individual and their family.

"In 2019 $5.9 Billion of home care expenditures were classified as out-of-pocket meaning the recipient or their family had to pay the cost," Slome shared. "In 2018, some$11.4 Billion was paid out-of-pocket and in 2017 the amount reported was $12.7 Billion."

The Association recently added a new updated compilation of information regarding long-term care need to the organization's website.
