Quality of Care
With long term care insurance, you have more options and freedom to choose the place and type of care that meet your care needs.
Quality of care is a legitimate concern for anyone who is dependent on others for their personal care. That is why it is important to "shop around" diligently before selecting a long-term care provider or a facility.
The New York State Department of Health is responsible for monitoring quality of care at all health care facilities in the State and this job is taken very seriously. The law, regulations, periodic inspections, and rapid response to irregular situations all help to insure that residents will receive the best care, whether they pay privately or receive Medicaid.
