The report shows you what kinds of plans consumers bought recently, and what factors may be less crucial than you may have expected.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
LTC Consumer announced that its summary of long term care insurance buying trends from 2014 is now available online.
The one-page guide compiles data from more than 2,000 applications for long term care insurance submitted by LTC Consumer Specialists on behalf of applicants from January 2013 to November 2014.
It summarizes demographics (gender, age ranges, marital status) and details about the coverage itself (benefit period, maximum monthly benefit, elimination period).
“The report shows you what kinds of plans consumers bought recently, and what factors may be less crucial than you may have expected,” Sanow says. “It’s a good way to gain some confidence about what other people like you have been doing about planning for long term care. For example, 58% of applicants through LTC Consumer applied for a 3 year benefit period, 42% applied for a monthly benefit amount between $4,000 and $4,999 and they had an average monthly cost of under $180 a month.”
