A "per diem" or "indemnity" long term care insurance policy will pay up to a fixed amount of benefits.

An "expense-incurred" long term care insurance policy allows you to choose the benefit amount when you buy the policy. It reimburses you for actual expenses incurred, up to a fixed amount per day, per week, or per month.

Note that no policy will pay unlimited benefits.

Answer:

An indemnity long term care (LTC) insurance pays a specific daily amount based on your policy, supposed you get an indemnity ltci with benefits amount of $300/daily for a benefit period of 3 years, and you require long term care later, let's say your daily ltc expenses is $150, you will still get $300 regardless of your daily ltc expense, you have the freedom to decide where you are going to spend the excess $150. This is fixed for 3 years, depending on the benefit period you choose. So if after three years, you still need care, you will have to pay the cost out of your pocket

An expense incurred ltci reimburesed you with exact amount for your care. Supposed you bought an expense incurred ltci with daily benefit of $200 for 3 years and your daily ltc expenses is $100, you will be reimbursed with $100 and the excess will be kept as a savings so you can extend your benefit period. If after three years you still need long term care, since you saved $100 from your benefit amount, the insurance company will cntinue paying for your expenses even if you only bought a 3 year benefit period policy, until your savings are all spent.

The difference between indemnity and non-indemnity insurance in insurance law?

When indemnity (often called short-term) insurance contracts are concluded the insured is entitled to recover the actual commercial value of what he has lost through the happening of the insured event, be such event damage to property, fire, theft, public liability or marine insurance. In non-indemnity insurance the sum which the insured is entitled to receive from the insurer does not necessarily bear any relation to the actual loss, if any, suffered by the insured. Life insurance contracts, personal accident and sickness insurance are examples of non-indemnity insurance. Rgds max_jaret@yahoo.com


The difference between indemnity and traditional health insurance plan?

Indemnity plans do not have to pay the hospital or doctor. Indemnity plans are designed to indemnify either the insured or the provider. That means if you have services that cost 20,000.00 dollars and you opt for the insurance company to pay you they will make the check payable to you. You can then negotiate with the provider for a better deal and keep the difference in cash. You can look at available indemnity plans through American National Health Insurance of Texas These plans are offered all over the the USA. If the plan is a good one it is more expensive then regular medical insurance. If it is a limited plan it will be very cheap compared to regular medical insurance.

Indemnity, indemnify (as I understand it) is protection from loss, and to make whole, after a loss has been sustained. On Behalf of would be the person the sum is being paid for/in your stead/representing you/in stead of you. Your insurance company made payment to the injured/damaged property that you were responsible for, thus indemnifying them, on your behalf, (rather than you paying it yourself).
