What is the difference between Disability and Long Term Care insurances?


Disability usually covers lost salary or wages.



Long Term Care means convalescent care (not acute care that is covered by health insurance or Medicare/Medicaid/Medi-Cal).

Insurance addresses the issue of WHO is going to pay the expenses should the condition occur. No insurance means your assets do.
