Expand Consumer Solutions Urges Long Term Care Insurance Association Director
A variety of insurance and financial products exist today that can help individuals deal with the high costs associated with needing long term care services. The head of the national long term care insurance trade group encourages more insurance agents to broaden their horizon in order to help benefit more of their clients and prospects.
“There once were just a handful of mutual funds for consumers to choose from and today there are hundreds,” shares Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance, a national organization that advocates for sensible planning. “Today there are a wide range of different ways to approach sensible long term care planning.
Slome spoke today with a leading national distributor of long term care insurance products. “If we want to help more consumers, we need to start by educating more insurance professionals to the various available solutions,” Slome shared at the meeting. AALTCI recently established the National Advisory Center for Short Term Care which will focus on building awareness and sales of STC insurance products.
“Short term care insurance or recovery care products are one of the newer options that can be especially attractive to those in their 60s, 70s and 80s,” Slome shared with the distributor. On Tuesday, October 27, 2015, Slome will present four online workshops for agents interested in learning more about short term care insurance products.
“Anyone interested in learning more about these solutions can watch the live broadcast online via any computer or device with Internet access,” Slome shared. There is no cost.
