Technology Makes It Easier to Shop for Long Term Care Insurance

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, Feb 25, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Consumers and insurance professionals have often expressed unease at the process of shopping and explaining Long Term Care insurance (LTCi). LTCi is the type of coverage people look into to prepare for the costs of extended long term health care which is normally not covered by traditional health insurance or Medicare (for those who are 65 and older). With so many more people requiring extended health care, either at home or in a facility, preparing for the financial, emotional and physical burdens this type of care places on a family is on the top of many people's lists.

"Many consumers want to learn about Long Term Care planning and their options without having to meet insurance agents in their home or office. At ACSIA, our specialists are trained to use the latest screen sharing technology which allows you to see the agent's desktop. ACSIA agents can educate a consumer about Long Term Care, answer their questions and provide them with quotes from all the major insurance companies conveniently from their home or office without having to meet with an agent in person," said Rich Horowitz, Director of Business Development and Webinar Training Director for ACSIA Long Term Care, Inc. (ACSIA), one of the nation's leading marketers of Long Term Care insurance.

This flexibility for the consumer makes it easier and more convenient to learn about their options without feeling pressured or having to meet multiple people in person. Horowitz says this process is very user friendly and enables complete transparency about pricing and comparisons of all the major LTCi carriers and their plans.

"With today's busy schedules, this process fits well with people's lifestyles. They can quickly learn about their options, see quotes and compare plans and then have the opportunity to think about how they want to proceed without the pressure of an agent at their kitchen table," Horowitz explained.

Few Long Term Care Specialists have the skills and ability to help consumers in this way. Horowitz says Long Term Care insurance can be very affordable and recommends that consumers visit and click on the "Long Term Care insurance Quotes" icon on the upper left hand corner of the website.
