The Limited and Extended Care Planning Center Sounds Off!

By Carroll Golden on 10/1/21 3:45 PM

It would be an understatement to say that it is critical for the extended and long-term care (LTC) industry to weigh in on the Washington State legislation that creates a publicly funded LTC program. The industry has historically welcomed a public-private option and we are hopeful that the various state legislatures contemplating instituting publicly funded programs of their own will embrace knowledgeable suggestions from insurers, business processing firms, distributors, agents, and advisors. At the federal level, there are proposals that would also benefit from industry participation.

How to Protect Your LTC Plan From Future Inflation

By Tom Riekse Jr. on 7/21/21 11:02 AM

Significant inflation - something that the majority of Americans have not seen in their lifetime - has been a primary news topic.  From concerns about exploding national debt and high government spending levels to an expanding post-pandemic economy, many people are concerned about sustained inflation and decreased purchasing power.  Or, as many economists are assuring us, this could be a short-term event as the economy bounces back from the pandemic. Nobody knows!

A CLTC Teachable Moment... Who Provides Extended Care Where?

By CLTC on 7/7/21 7:00 AM

Most clients say they want to receive care in their homes. But they also say they don’t want to be a burden on family or friends.

Both goals are understandable and maybe in conflict when care is needed. As with so many things in life, it can be wise to be careful of what we wish for.
