Long Term Assurance Team

About Long Term Assurance

Long Term Assurance was started in 2009 to assist families in paying for long term care planning.  At that time options in paying for care were not as ready talked about.  Over the years Medicaid, Long Term Care Insurance, and Aid and Attendance have become very common place terms.  Unfortunately, common knowledge doesn’t necessarily translate into proper understanding.  At Long Term Assurance we strive to stay on top of the laws and rules that affect various options in paying for long term care.  It is our goal to take the confusion that exists at this critical time in families lives and bring clarity.
