Jason Addresses LTC Professionals

Earlier this month, a group of long term care insurance specialists gathered in Chattanooga for a weekend of professional development.  Jason Hillner, CLTC was pleased to be asked to share his knowledge of the CLASS (Community Living Assistance and Supportive Services) provision of the Health Care Bill of 2010. 

CLASS will provide for a voluntary federal long term care insurance program.  This will allow for coverage for people below the federal poverty level to get coverage for $5/month and for those with very significant health issues to be covered, as well.   While the premium for non-indigent workers are expected to be higher than private LTC insurance, CLASS does provide an interesting opportunity for these special groups.

About tennesseelongtermcare

Long term care is a risk we all face, regardless of age. Need may result from an accident, a serious health condition or as part of the aging process. The consequences to our physical, financial and emotional well-being can be catastrophic if we postpone planning until after the need for care arises. After all, our health is ever only as good as it is today. Long term care coverage provides a vehicle to guarantee your family an income stream and to maintain lifestyle in the event you have an extended care need. It is vital protection for your family’s personal, emotional and financial well-being. Lindsey & Associates is the Chattanooga area's premiere source for long term care insurance planning. Serving Chattanooga for nearly fifteen years, Lindsey & Associates was founded by Gail R. Lindsey, M.S., CLTC who sought to be an effective advocate for families with extended care needs after a successful career as a therapist. Lindsey & Associates is unique in that their planners are specialists in long term care insurance and approach their work from a perspective of education and advocacy, not the "bottom line". If you feel that you owe it to your family to hear all the options when it comes to your future care, we would encourage you to contact one of our LTC planners. We meet with individuals and families to find the most cost-effective way for them to age in place, at home, with the dignity and care they have earned over a lifetime of hard work.
