Several IRS rulings have established that a portion of a Life Care community entrance fee and monthly fees are deductible as prepaid medical expenses. You’ll be wise to discuss your individual tax situation with your personal tax adviser.

If you have a long-term care insurance policy, you might be eligible to receive benefits if you need boarding care, memory care or skilled nursing care. Your policy may work hand in hand with Life Care and pay earned benefits directly to you — but you should consult your insurance carrier for specific details about your policy.

If you outlive your resources for reasons outside your control and are unable to pay your monthly service fee, you’ll still have lifetime occupancy.
