Long Term Care insurance is both affordable and easy to understand in a unique process utilized by one of the nation’s top Long Term Care specialists.
Mary Ann DeKing uses her distinctive approach to helping clients address the physical, emotional and financial burdens Long Term Care places on family and friends. This has won praise from fellow professionals around the country and clients alike.
DeKing has been recognized by the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance (AALTCI) as one of the country’s top specialists among their list of top professionals in this area in 2012. The AALTCI was established in 1998 and advocates for the importance of Long Term Care planning and supports insurance professionals who market the complete range of planning products.
For the second year in-a-row, DeKing was ranked as the nation’s number two LTCi specialist by the AALTCI. She has been listed among the top professionals in the nation by the AALTCI for four straight years.
In addition, ACSIA Long Term Care, one of the nation’s top agencies specializing in Long Term Care, recognized her as their number one specialist in 2012 for the second year in-a-row. DeKing is associated with ACSIA which allows her to assist her clients as she is able to shop and offer the top insurance companies.
“Few LTCi specialists in the country have her level of experience. Most insurance agents and financial advisors do not understand how these products work and how to design affordable plans which address the needs of clients. Mary Ann leads in the nation in her ability to find affordable solutions for her clients,” said Matt McCann, the Director of Business Development for ACSIA.
Long Term Care Insurance is a product that can affordably help people plan for the risk of needing extended care. The cost of care is not usually paid for by health insurance or Medicare. The last thing many people want to do is have to talk to a number of insurance agents to find out what they want to know.
DeKing enables her client’s to see her computer screen as they, on the telephone, learn about their options and shop all the top companies to find the best coverage at the best value.
DeKing says this is a private and confidential way to learn, plan and care for the future. Since most insurance agents are not as skilled in this area, it allows her to assist individuals throughout the country. This way a consumer can meet with just one person who happens to be a specialist. This makes it easy and convenient.
“It is an honor to be able to help thousands of people across the country plan for their Long Term Health Care. I am privileged that so many people allow me to assist their families find affordable solutions to plan for this big issue we will all face as we age in the next thirty years. I am touched by the trust that they have placed in me in this important part of retirement planning,” said DeKing.
DeKing says she helps people, primarily ages 40 to 70, who wish to plan for their future retirement so they can protect their assets and never be a burden on their family. She says Long Term Care insurance is very affordable if designed correctly.
“The person gets to see my photo as they watch my desktop on their own computer screen. We then have a good conversation where I ask them questions. If Long Term Care planning is appropriate I help design an affordable plan and we can make application electronically. There is no pressure, just someone who understands and shares their concerns answering their questions,” DeKing said.
DeKing said since insurance rates in Long Term Care are regulated, every agent uses the same rates for each insurance company.
“The main difference between me and some insurance person down the street is the my level of experience in Long Term Care, the fact I represent the top insurance companies and I can help people using this technology to make it simple and convenient for the consumer,” DeKing added.
DeKing has sent up a website for consumers to learn more and contact her for setting up a private consultation: http://www.planandcare.com. Her office number is 888-778-2905.
