Kantor & Kantor Partners to Speak Before Geriatric Care Organization
Alan Kassan and Corinne Chandler to present “Obtaining Insurance Benefits for Your Client’s Care” to the Western Region Chapter of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers at its 21st Annual Conference in Las Vegas.
“Many people purchased long-term care insurance decades ago and before today’s senior care options were even contemplated,”
One of the most common reasons LTC carriers deny benefits is because the policyholder resides in an assisted living facility but the 20-year-old policy doesn’t cover such facilities, which were not an option until recent years. Kantor & Kantor has successfully litigated the issue, allowing policyholders to receive benefits for assisted living.
“As the Baby Boomer population ages and requires care, we expect more options to arise for which insurers will deny coverage,” said partner Corinne Chandler. “When geriatric care professionals understand that insurance companies don’t always have the last word, they can better help their clients navigate the often complex long-term care legal environment."
