Profile Information

Member type
LTC insurance agent
Company I work with most?
I evaluate my client’s health and financials to help them design and find the best policy for their personal situation. Some of the carriers we consider are MetLife, John Hancock, Genworth, Prudential, and others when necessary. I am paid the same by all carriers, so I have no bias.
What do you like about working with this company?
I prefer the companies listed because of the financial stability and commitment to world class customer service. I have been in the long term care business exclusively since 1995.
What do clients like most about working with you?
My clients tell me I am able to cut through the confusion about this product by honing in on their needs and concerns. They also appreciate the help I give when they need assistance with their claims. I have helped my clients though more than 100 claims. My goal is that they are able to stay home or enjoy assisted living with the best care possible. Several clients have recovered from broken bones and illnesses and have gone off claim. Most people don’t realize we can take months to recover our lives these days.
As one client said,” ...our LTC insurance company, including you, could not have been nicer or more efficient. Your program made my wife’s last days infinitely more comfortable, and for that I am eternally grateful.”
What else can you add to helping people with their Long Term Care needs?
I have access to a range of products to help people who may not be able to be underwritten by one or another company. I also have access to a team of high caliber professionals to help with financial matters, bookkeeping, bill paying and legal and real estate issues.

Letter From a Client Re: LTC Claim

August 4, 2005

Dear Barbara,

I am writing to express my appreciation and gratitude for the truly outstanding service my wife Patricia and I received from your Long Term Care Insurance.

The background is this: Patricia and I had long term care insurance with another company, one recommended by the magazine Consumers Reports. When we saw that your program was recommended by MOAA (Military Officers of America Association) we decided to investigate your… Continue

True Reason for LTC Insurance-Response to Article

As an LTC specialist over the last 14 years, I have had enough claims to know why people buy long term care insurance. They love their families and they love their independence and dignity. I am attaching letters from claimants. For these people, having this coverage helped them stay home while NOT seeing themselves as a burden to their family. People invest and save for a good retirement and to leave money to their heirs. What other than a health problem like LTC can take that away from them?… Continue

77,000,000 Baby Boomers are Approaching 65

77,000,000 Baby Boomers are approaching 65, and the government is hoping that we are prepared to pay for our own care when we become disabled by illness and aging. In 1999, 43 per cent of those over 65 historically spent time in a nursing home before dying. About 95% of nursing home residents only require “custodial” care, not 24 hour “medically necessary” care which is a limited benefit payable by Medicare. Us Boomers typically have had fewer children than our parents, we live longer today,… Continue
