Assisted Living Definition
Insurance companies define assisted living and home health care as needing assistance with activities of daily living such as eating, showering, bathing, etc.
To qualify for immediate coverage you cannot be in a nursing home or receiving hospice care (terminally ill).
You can still get burial insurance if you are in a nursing home or receiving hospice care but it will be a guaranteed issue policy.
How Insurance Companies View Assisted Living
First and foremost, if you or a loved one are receiving assisted living, many insurance companies will not offer coverage, and others will charge you unaffordable rates.
But not all.
Companies are competing for your business, and there are a few out there that will still offer your rock bottom rates with no waiting period.
The truth is many companies view assisted living as a high risk red flag to them, with a few exceptions.

“Is the proposed insured Hospitalized, in a nursing facility, or receiving Hospice Care?”
