October 6, 2014 – So much has changed about long-term care insurance except no one tells that to consumers according to one of the nation’s leading experts.

“So much has changed as a result of the Great Recession and that includes long term care insurance,” explains Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance.   Slome will travel to Chicago to speak to the staff of one of the nation’s foremost distributors of policies.

“Sales of long-term care insurance are slumping and a key reason is a lack of information and awareness of the important changes,” Slome adds.  “No body would pay seven percent for a 30-year mortgage today but that’s about what they cost in 2007.  Consumers understand that because of media and industry awareness efforts.  But when it comes to long term care insurance, it’s almost as if little has changed in the past few years.”

Slome will urge the Chicago audience to educate their markets to the fact that long term care insurance policies today are dramatically different than they were just a few short years ago.  “The new policies have options and features that consumers seek – affordability, options for future growth and flexibility in terms of care options,” Slome will share.  “Someone has to now create the understanding among prospects who want to plan for the very real risk of needing long term care.”

The national expert founded the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance in 1998 to create heightened awareness and to support insurance agents and financial professionals who market LTC solutions.  To arrange speaking engagements contact the organization.  For long term care insurance costs call 818-597-3227 or visit the Association’s website.
