Los Angeles, CA, July 26, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- As a result of concern that the federal health care program fails to address long term care, the number of consumers contacting the national trade group responsible for consumer awareness has increased significantly.
“Frankly we can not handle the number of calls from consumers confused about what’s covered and what isn’t and how to plan for the eventual risk of needing long-term care,” explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. “So many people have the same question and are confused about how to start looking into long term care insurance that we needed to find a more efficient way to answer the questions.”
The organization’s director announced the return of the “Long Term Care Insurance Answer Guy” a popular feature on the Association’s website. “People ask questions and we post the answer for all to see,” Slome says. “Most of the questions posed in the past had to do with buying long term care insurance but lately we have seen more health insurance related questions as there is growing confusion regarding what is and is not covered by Obamacare and Medicare.”
The American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance is the national trade organization focused on educating individuals about the importance of planning for the risk of long term care.
For additional information or to hear from a member of the Association call the organization’s national headquarters in Los Angeles at (818) 597-3227 or visit their website where consumers can also access a variety of free online long term care insurance planning guides that have appeared in prior issues of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.
