"More businesses and other groups have been requesting information on long term care insurance for their employees or their members," explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. "That prompted us to add an entire new section to the Association's website that provides generic information addressing common questions and providing employers with the option of connecting with a knowledgeable group long term care insurance specialist http://www.aaltci.org/
Employers and trade groups including membership associations increasingly are offering long term care insurance protection on a voluntary or employee-paid benefit according to the Association. "There are some significant benefits to employers and employees," Slome notes, "including the ability to qualify for some discounts only available to groups as well as some simplified health underwriting."
"Groups can be as small as under-10 individuals to qualify for these advantages today," Slome reports. "That is one reason why there's been a growing interest especially among the millions of small and mid-sized businesses."
The new Employer Group section of the Association's website provides the option of connecting with a knowledgeable group long term care insurance specialist. "If an employer has a benefits consultant, the specialist will support their efforts but many employers don't have a benefits expert so the specialist will be able to walk them through the entire process without any cost or obligation,"
