Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do you get paid?
We are paid commissions by insurance companies if you purchase a product through us, just like your home & auto insurance agent. We do occasionally provide review & consultation on existing policies and other infrequent consultative services for an hourly fee. But the vast majority of our work is provided at no cost to our clients.
How long does the process take?
On average the LTC planning process can take 1-6 months based upon the complexity of the planning, underwriting & records gathering, and time between each step.
How does the process work?
We provide custom-designed plans for everyone we work with.
We begin by having one or more discussions around your needs, circumstances, preferences, etc. to help determine the best options for you.
Next, we ask you to complete an internal form to review your health and financial info. With that health info we get you confidentially, pre-qualified with our top-choice insurance companies.
We’ll then work with you to determine a plan that best meets your needs and circumstances. We will help you apply for the coverage you want and will walk with you through the underwriting process.
Finally, we will make any adjustments necessary to your plan and then help you put your plan into place.
Can you work with my financial advisor, CPA, attorney, etc.?
Yes! We love to work together with other professionals.
What if I live in another state?
While we are located in Virginia and Tennessee, we work with people all over the U.S.
What if I live outside the U.S.?
U.S. laws require you to be in the U.S. in order to purchase LTC insurance. However, we can begin the planning process while someone is overseas, so long as they are in the U.S. to go through the application/underwriting process.
What other services do you provide?
We also provide assistance with filing claims, reviewing existing policies, and helping find caregiving resources.
Will my LTC insurance premiums increase over time?
It depends. There are policies whose rates can (and mostly likely will) increase over time, and there are policies whose premiums are guaranteed not to increase. We can help you determine what option is best for you.
What if I’ve been declined for LTC insurance before?
We have had success finding options for people who have previously been declined. Sometimes financial professionals who are not LTC specialists encourage their clients to apply for coverage without going through the important confidential, pre-qualification process – which can protect their insurability. This can lead to a decline, when another company might have been willing to offer you coverage.
Bottom-line… while we can’t guarantee you coverage, we can help you find the best solutions available.
What if I move to another state?
Any LTC insurance policies we would help you purchase can be used in all 50 states even if you move after already receiving care. Some policies include Canada and some even offer coverage internationally.
Additionally, they will provide benefits for home care, assisted living, and nursing home facilities as well other possible care settings and options.
Other services we offer
