MetLife Health Insurance Says
MetLife health insurance offers coverage options for long-term care and disability income. Long-term care insurance is intended to help individuals plan for the future and provides benefits in the event of a long-term illness or injury. It covers care for an extended period of time at home, in an assisted living facility or at a nursing home, depending on the amount of coverage purchased. Disability income, as its name implies, offers financial protection by providing income replacement in the event of a disabling injury or illness.
