Los Angeles, CA, February 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- A new informational website focused on the State of Connecticut Long Term Care Insurance Partnership program has been launched by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance the national trade group. AALTCI's mission is focused on creating heightened consumer awareness for the importance of long term care planning.
According to Jesse Slome, executive director of AALTCI, the Connecticut Long Term Care Partnership program provides a unique asset protection benefit that was created in the 1990s as a way to encourage more middle income individuals to be able to afford long term care insurance protection.
The State of Connecticut was one of four original U.S. states to initiate the special Long Term Care Partnership program, Slome explains. New York, California and Indiana were the other three original states. The Long Term Care Partnership program has since been expanded by Congressional approval to almost all 50 states nationwide.
“The initial Partnership program which involves a partnership between States and private insurers was conceived and supported by grants from the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation. According to Jesse Slome, who was the first marketing consultant retained to launch the California Long-Term Care Partnership program, "the goal was making affordable long term care insurance protection available and attractive to as many individuals as possible.”
Under State-approved regulation in Connecticut, state residents are eligible for the program that can only be offered by approved insurers and licensed professionals who take part in special training. The Los Angeles, CA-based American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance will be working closely with designated professionals to help consumers seeking information as well as cost proposals for this important protection.
The web address for the new website is www.connecticutpartnershiponly.com and provides the latest information on the program. AALTCI recently posted a website for New York residents interested in partnership information.
