Shopping Online for Long-Term Care Insurance is Safe and Easy


We do so many things online these days.

Online shopping provides added convenience from the comfort of your home. It also allows you to avoid speaking to pushy salespeople. When shopping for Long-Term Care Insurance, can you shop online?

Long-Term Care Insurance is an affordable solution to give you access to your choice of quality care when you need it, protecting assets, and eases family stress.

"Most insurance agents and financial advisors have limited knowledge with LTC Insurance. Typically, they only have access to one or two insurance companies,” said Matt McCann, a nationally known expert on LTC Insurance and planning. “Find a specialist online is not only easy but will save you money too."

McCann explains that to get accurate quotes and professional recommendations, you will need to answer several detailed questions about your health and family history. 

"Several top specialists, including myself, have outstanding websites that help educate the consumer. Once an individual wants quotes from the major companies, they need to help me help them. We make the process quick and pressure-free," McCann explained.

McCann says LTC Insurance is affordable, but premiums can vary over 100 percent between insurance companies. The underwriting criteria also vary among insurance companies. He says his job is to match the consumer with the right company and then design an appropriate plan based on their specific situation.

"LTC Insurance is custom designed. There are many options, including shared spousal plans, partnership plans, hybrid policies, short-term policies, and so much more. A specialist, like myself, can make it easy, and you will have the peace-of-mind knowing you shopped for the best coverage," McCann said.

The cost of long-term care services continues to rise. These costs will adversely affect your savings, income, lifestyle, and legacy. Even a small policy gives you access to your choice of quality care in your home or in a facility. Planning when you are younger and healthy is essential.

"The best time to research LTC Insurance is when you are in your 40s or 50s as premiums are much lower and your health is typically better. However, no matter your age, a specialist, like myself, can find a plan that gives you and your family peace-of-mind," he said.
