What is an elimination period?

You can think of the elimination period as another way to describe long term care insurance deductible. This is the number of days that you will be responsible for paying for your care before the insurance begins to pay. Other insurance plans have deductibles that are measured in dollars. Long term care insurance policies have deductibles measured in days with options like: 0 days, 20 days, 60 days or 100 days.
