Los Angeles, CA, February 02, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- To build sales of short-term care insurance products, the 2017 agent awareness and educational campaign has launched the National Advisory Center for Short-Term Care Information.
"We hope to double the number of insurance professionals currently marketing and selling short-term care insurance solutions and awareness and education are the first steps to achieving these results," declares Jesse Slome, director of the National Advisory Center.
Slome noted that a significant number of insurance agents who started offering clients short-term care solutions have found they address the needs of many senior consumers who want to undertake some long-term care planning. "All too often, agents come across consumers who can't afford traditional long-term care insurance, or they can't health qualify," Slome acknowledges. "For many of these individuals a short-term care insurance solution is a suitable option."
The long-term care insurance expert, Slome serves as director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). "AALTCI studies have found that almost half (41%) of all people using benefits from traditional long-term care insurance policies have claims lasting one year or less," Slome reports. "A short-term care insurance policy which typically will provide a maximum of 360 days of care will fit the bill."
The Advisory Center director noted plans to conduct an ongoing series of agent training webinars throughout the year. "We are looking for agents who want to sell short-term care solutions and if policies are available in their states, we are helping them be successful," Slome concluded.
