March 19, 2014 – Discounted early registration costs to attend the 2014 Long Term Care Insurance Sales Summit end shortly. The national conference for insurance professionals is organized by the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance, a national trade group.
“There is renewed interest in private insurance solutions now that Americans recognize there are not going to be any government options,” declares Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). The Affordable Care Act had included provisions for a voluntary federal long term care option. “This was the only part of Obamacare that the White House backed away from.”
“Every day we all get one day older and that’s one day closer to needing long term care as a result of aging,” Slome explains. “We tell people their risk of needing care is either zero percent or 100 percent and if one acknowledges there is a risk, planning for it makes sense.”
The national LTC Summit takes place May 18-20, 2014 at the Westin Hotel in Kansas City. Early registration is currently $99 through March 31. Registration costs increase $100-per-person on April 1 according to the Association.
“There will be three days of powerful workshops featuring many of the nation’s leading experts in the field,” Slome notes. “Attending is a chance to learn, to hear the latest strategies and to network with experts as well as all the leading insurers in the field.” Exhibitors include both traditional long term care insurers as well as those offering newer hybrid products including life insurance and annuities that offer long term care options.
The American Association for Long Term Care Insurance provides insurance agents and brokers with ongoing information. To learn more about the long term care conference visit the Association’s website at www.aaltci.org/2014summit.
