What is the difference between Long-term care and Medicare?

Published by Mary Marshall Team on

Medicare doesn’t cover long-term care (also called custodial care).

Most nursing home care is custodial care.

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay 100% for non-covered services, including most long-term care.

What it is

Long-term care is a range of services and support for your personal care needs. Most long-term care isn’t medical care. Instead, most long-term care is help with basic personal tasks of everyday life like bathing, dressing, and using the bathroom, sometimes called activities of daily living.
