Demystifying Medicare and Long Term Care Insurance - Healthcare Liaison Workshop 9/20 Shows Consumers How to Make Choices
Date:9/3/2008

BERKELEY, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Making choices about Medicare policies and long term care insurance are some of the most challenging decisions facing Baby Boomers, largely because available information is often confusing and difficult to understand. On September 20th Healthcare Liaison will demystify these subjects in a consumer workshop, "Medicare and Long Term Care Insurance -- Understanding the Maze", at the University of California, Berkeley, Clark Kerr Campus, 8:30 a.m. to noon.

"Medicare and long term care policies are difficult for most consumers to understand," says Healthcare Liaison CEO Joanna Smith. "One of my clients is a 65-year old attorney who has interpreted complex legal documents his whole career -- and he still needed help figuring out which Medicare plan had the medical and drug coverage most appropriate for him and his wife."

Long Term Care Insurance: To Buy Or Not To Buy. "When it comes to long-term care insurance, many consumers aren't sure if it makes sense to purchase coverage," says Smith, who notes that an important initial consideration is affordability. "There's a simple guideline consumers can use prior to looking closely at coverage and terms of various policies," says Smith. "It's the one-year rule. Basically, if you have enough discretionary funds in the bank to cover the cost of a one year stay in a good nursing home, you probably have adequate assets to make it worthwhile to pay premiums for a long term care policy."
