LTC Consumer is a new, free online service featuring one-of-a-kind tools to help consumers easily understand, evaluate, and price long term care insurance policies. The website is LTCconsumer.com, and can be used on tablets and smartphones in addition to computers.
“One of the biggest questions by consumers is how much does long term care insurance cost?” says Nathan Sanow, Executive Director and co-founder of LTC Consumer. “Until now, a consumer was required to give their personal information and speak with a sales agent just to get an idea of how much a policy costs. Many are put off or intimidated by this process. We developed a long term care online quote calculator for consumers to be able to shop the top carriers on their own, easily and privately.”
This Instant Quote tool allows consumers to quickly shop the most common carriers and benefits, and delivers a premium quote on the computer screen within seconds; there is no need for users to wait for an agent to phone them. Quotes are free and unlimited.
Other resources at LTCconsumer.com include calculators, planning information, and a Cost of Care Map, which shows average annual cost of care for home health care, assisted living, and nursing home care in all 50 states. Users can request a complimentary appointment with a Consumer Specialist for personalized advice and help evaluating specific policies and insurance companies. If coverage is desired, the specially-trained and licensed Consumer Specialist can help them complete an application.
“Having a plan for an extended health care event is part of smart financial planning. LTCconsumer.com wants to make that process easier than ever. Our mission is to provide an educational, no-pressure resource for learning about long term care planning, so consumers have all of the information they need to make an informed decision. Consumers now have the tool to control the process and see quotes up front,” said Sanow.
