Los Angeles, CA, July 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- For the average consumer shopping for long-term care insurance can be a confusing and frustrating task. To aide in the process, members of the industry’s leading trade organization are offering free education and no-obligation cost quotes for coverage.
“It’s relatively easy to compare costs for gasoline because there are large signs outside each station,” explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. “You can’t say the same when it comes to long term health care insurance, it can be a daunting task if you don’t know how or where to start.”
According to Slome, one of the long term care insurance industry experts, unlike gasoline which is a relative commodity, there are many moving parts vital in selecting the best long term care insurance coverage for a particular individual.
“First of all the price for coverage can vary significantly from one insurer to another for virtually identical plans of coverage,” Slome notes. “If you have some health conditions or take prescription medications even for common conditions, some insurers may not offer you coverage while others will and you need to know this before applying.”
To assist consumers interested in long term care planning and insurance as an option, members of the trade group are offering free education and no-obligation, no cost long term care insurance costs for leading insurance companies. “We have members in all 50 states committed to helping individuals,” Slome explains. “They will take the time needed to explain how this insurance works and, if there is interest, to prepare free cost quotes.”
