Course Information
Content Level: Intermediate
NAPFA Subject Area: B-Insurance & Risk Management
Course Description
Once again, the federal and state government is attempting to roll out a mandatory LTC benefit program paid for by worker contributions. The state of Washington announced their program earlier this year and with fast approaching deadlines, many are trying to learn what their contribution will actually pay for. Will the payroll tax in fact cover them during a long-term care event in the future, or is a private LTCI policy a better solution? We have heard from many sources that there are a dozen other states considering a similar type of program. It is important to read the fine print and do your homework, especially since 65% of Americans will need care in the future. We will walk you through Eligibility Requirements, Plan Costs and Benefits, Opting out options, Benefit Triggers, Employer responsibility, Private LTCI, and much more. Let us help you learn the pros and cons of this type of program by utilizing our decades of experience and expertise.
Learning Objectives
  1. Familiarize yourself with the approximate cost of care for Nursing Home, Facility and Home Health Care and how LTCI benefits help cover those costs.
  2. Determine if a government LTCI program offers your clients the best coverage to protect their assets when a long-term care event arises, or if private LTCI makes more financial sense
  3. Understand the key differences between Stand-Alone LTCI and Hybrid Asset-Based Life or Annuities with LTCI Riders and carrier funding options available.
