A 2005-2006 Long-Term Care Insurance Comparison Guide has been published by the Louisiana Department of Insurance’s Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP). The updated guide is designed to give consumers a better understanding of long-term care insurance and detailed information for shopping for the insurance.
Commissioner of Insurance Robert Wooley said the SHIIP staff compiled information for the 39-page guide using the different long-term care insurance policies sold in Louisiana. “The guide gives consumers information on what these policies can cost, an explanation of terminology used in long-term care policies and shopping tips for buying long-term care insurance,” Wooley said.
The easiest way to access the 2005-2006 Long-Term Care Insurance Comparison Guide is online, at www.ldi.state.la.us, but consumers can get a printed copy by calling the SHIIP toll-free number, (800) 259-5301.
