LifeCare, the Acceleration rider, and the Continuation rider may not all be available in some states. The Acceleration rider is automatically included with every LifeCare policy, and the Continuation rider is optional. There are additional costs associated with these riders that are included in the single premium. LifeCare with the Acceleration and/or Continuation rider is not considered long-term care insurance in some states. When the death benefit is accelerated for long term care expenses, the death benefit is reduced dollar for dollar, and the policy cash value is reduced proportionally.
