A special webinar for Texas insurance agents will be presented by Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). The webinar will focus on the introduction of a significant short-term care insurance option just approved by the State.
“Short-term care insurance is a highly viable way for consumers to plan for the very real risk of one day needing care and finally there is an option available in Texas,” explains Jesse Slome, AALTCI’s director and head of the National Advisory Center for Short-Term Care Information. “We are going to conduct this introductory educational program to heighten awareness among insurance agents who offer long-term care insurance and other Medicare insurance products.”
“We applaud the State insurance department for providing consumers with a more affordable option than traditional long-term care insurance,” Slome shares. Short-term care insurance policies can provide up to 360 days of coverage. “While some long-term care claims can last many years, about 40-percent last one year or less, making this a very viable and affordable option for many Texans with more limited budgets for optional insurance protection.”
The 30-minute webinar will take place on April 24, 2018 at 8:00 AM Pacific (11:00 AM Eastern). The session will provide an overview of the short-term care insurance marketplace, the benefits for consumers and share highlights regarding the just-approved product.
Preregistration is required as space is limited. Following the webinar a recorded version will be accessible via the National Advisory Center for Short Term Care Information’s website. To register for the webinar go to: www.shorttermcareinsurance.org/texas.
