What is the difference between reimbursement and indemnity long term care insurance?

Reimbursement: you pay first, company pays you after for proper expenses. Indemnity: Company pays first of proper expenses. Indemnity is always better for the client

ANSWER:

With Indemnity long term care insurance, you get the full amount of your daily or monthly benefits regardless of the cost of care you receive. Supposed your daily benefit is $300 and your daily long term care expenses is $175, you still get the full amount of $300, therefore you can spend the excess money for things other than care. Reimbursement long term care insurance on the other hand, the amount of benefits is used exclusively for ong term care services, in the same situation above, your daily benefit is $300 and your long term care expenses is $175, you only get the exact amount of $175 for ltc expenses, the excess amount which is $125 is kept so your policy can still be used for an extended period of time.
