Austin, TX, September 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- As part of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, states must assure that long-term care insurance producers selling Partnership policies receive training and demonstrate an understanding of Partnership policies and their relationship to public and private coverage of long-term care.
Therefore, most states now require that producers complete initial and ongoing (refresher) training prior to selling, soliciting, or negotiating a long-term care insurance Partnership policy. In addition, many states are also implementing long-term care insurance training requirements as they adopt the NAIC Long-Term Care Insurance Model Act. These states require producers to complete specific training prior to selling, soliciting, or negotiating any LTC insurance policy (whether it be Partnership or non-Partnership policy). In fact, some states are implementing these long-term care insurance training requirements without implementing a Partnership program.
Shawn has joined LTC Connection in an effort to help educate long-term care insurance agents and equip them with the best education, therefore benefiting their clients. LTC Connection instructors have a passion for long-term care insurance that they want to share with other producers. Instructors must have three years experience and make their living selling long-term care insurance. These strict standards help ensure the best level of education possible.
