freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, WA - Dec. 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Will you or a family member need expensive long-term care someday? Almost for sure -- but if you're like most people, you don't want to think about it. But what if you could turn your mind, instead, to bright, bullish prospects?

That's the focus of a video clip and guidebook from LTC Financial Partners, the nation's most experienced long-term care insurance brokerage.”

Upbeat Information Helps Preserve Health & Wealth, Co-authored by Experts at LTC Financial Partners

KIRKLAND, WA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Will you or a family member need expensive long-term care someday? Almost for sure -- but if you're like most people, you don't want to think about it. But what if you could turn your mind, instead, to bright, bullish prospects? Visions of sailing or playing golf into your 90's, traveling, eating out ... or sheltering a few hundred thousand dollars from taxes? That's the focus of a video clip and guidebook from LTC Financial Partners, the nation's most experienced long-term care insurance brokerage.

The video clip is extracted from the TV series "Living In Style" and features LTC spokesperson Amy Pollock. The guidebook is "Dignity for Life: Facts That Can Protect Your Assets & Quality of Life." Rather than dwelling on depressing dangers, the guidebook and clip present the positives of smart planning. For example, did you know that -

* There's a preventive strategy for most leading causes of long-term disability?

* You can get a policy that returns your entire premium if you never need care (quite an incentive for staying fit!)?

* Properly-selected LTC insurance can protect your nest egg better than smart investments?

The 28-page guidebook draws on the combined experience of LTC Financial's 155 partners, who include 40% the nation's 100 most successful long term care insurance agents. "It's the only guide written by experts in the field who really know the facts and have a passion for helping people," says Cameron Truesdell, CEO. "Each co-author is 'the' expert in their region or specialty."

While focusing on positives, the video clip and guidebook also cover critical issues such as -

* Who tends to need long term care, and why,

* Alternative ways of paying for care, and

* How to choose the right policy from a sound carrier, and avoid rate escalation.

The video clip and guidebook are available free of charge, at http://www.eranova.com/LTCFP/contact.htm

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LYNNWOOD, WA - Dec. 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As the population ages, homeowners and real estate professionals face a challenge: meeting the special needs of people who can't take care of themselves. Things like making bathrooms wheelchair-accessible, or creating space for hired care workers.”



A R T I C L E:

As 77 Million Baby Boomers Approach Retirement, the Hottest Homes Will Accommodate Special Needs

LYNNWOOD, WA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As the population ages, homeowners and real estate professionals face a challenge: meeting the special needs of people who can't take care of themselves. Things like making bathrooms wheelchair-accessible, or creating space for hired care workers.

(c) Send2PressA new course, in live and correspondence form, will show how to meet senior needs and boost home values by including the right features and amenities. It's the brainchild of Christine Khemis, a nationally ranked long-term care specialist and Partner of LTC Financial Partners LLC, the nation's leading long-term care insurance brokerage. The live version of the course will debut in Bellevue, Washington, on December 9. The correspondence version will follow in 2006.

*(Photo Caption: Photo of Christine Khemis.)

"As 77 million Baby Boomers move into their senior years," says Khemis, "real estate is becoming a whole new ballgame. Almost every family will need to care for someone at some point, but few homes lend themselves to in-home care." Houses and apartments that are made ready will be in high demand, she asserts.

The live version of the course, "The Long-Term Care Crisis in America: Understanding the Trends That Will Help You Prosper in Challenging Times," will be held for the first time from 9 AM to 1 PM on Friday, December 9, at MBA University, MBA Housing Center, 335 116th Avenue SE, Bellevue, WA.

Continuing education credit is offered for real estate, insurance, financial, and legal professionals.

Nation’s Top Long-Term Care Insurance Producers Announced

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC
Dateline: Thu, 17 Nov 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, WA - Nov. 17 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Long-Term Care Sales Strategies magazine has awarded the 2005 National LTCi Sales Achievement Award to 60 Partners of LTC Financial Partners LLC. The honor recognizes the nation's leading long-term care insurance specialists and was presented at the recent National LTCi Producers Summit, the annual industry conference, held in Kansas City, MO. ”



A R T I C L E:

40% of the Awards Go to Partners of One Organization: LTC Financial Partners LLC, a Fast-Growing Agent-Owned Brokerage

KIRKLAND, WA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Long-Term Care Sales Strategies magazine has awarded the 2005 National LTCi Sales Achievement Award to 60 Partners of LTC Financial Partners LLC. The honor recognizes the nation's leading long-term care insurance specialists and was presented at the recent National LTCi Producers Summit, the annual industry conference, held in Kansas City, MO.

(c) Send2PressThe 60 accounted for 40% of all those honored, 150, from all agencies in the industry. "There are over 25,000 insurance agents and brokers nationwide who specialize in long-term care protection," says Jesse Slome, editor-in-chief of Sales Strategies magazine, the long-term care insurance industry's professional trade publication. "To be recognized as one of the top 150 is truly an indication of the individual's professionalism, accomplishment and dedicated commitment to serving consumers in their community."

*(Photo Caption: Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners LLC.)

LTC Financial Partners won a large share of the awards because, "We put the customer first, and we really know our business," says Cameron Truesdell, CEO. "Long-term care insurance is all we do. Also, we focus on education and service, not selling." In addition, the brokerage attracts top agents by offering them ownership shares, an industry first. Starting with two agents in 2003, LTC Financial Partners has grown to over 130 and adds new people monthly. "We have the most experienced, passionate and successful team ever assembled, and we've only just started."

As 77 million baby boomers approach retirement, the demand for long-term care insurance is likely to mushroom. "We're here to help millions of Americans find the right protection," says Truesdell. "With hundreds of top agents, we still won't be able to handle the volume."

Of the 60 Partners receiving awards, two were named among the top 10 performers: Shelly Kapfhammer and Todd Grove. Jonas Roeser, Director of Marketing, won a Marketing Excellence Award; his organization was the only independent brokerage so honored, sharing kudos with MetLife, MedAmerica and other major insurance carriers.

LTC Financial Partners is America's only national, agent-owned brokerage offering policies from multiple carriers, including MedAmerica, MetLife, John Hancock, Physicians Mutual, Prudential, Allianz, UnumProvident, and Penn Treaty.

Averting Financial Disaster for 20 Million – KC Confab Will Chart the Path

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC
Dateline: Wed, 28 Sep 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KANSAS CITY, MO - September 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, by 2025 more than 20 million Americans - incapacitated athletes and children as well as aging baby boomers - will need long-term care services. Ordinary health insurance won't cover it. Neither, in all likelihood, will Medicaid, as legislative reform cracks down on benefits claimed by the affluent. Yet, 'We can have long-term care protection for every American,' says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners LLC, the nation's leading LTC insurance brokerage.”



A R T I C L E:

Army of 100 Experts, from LTC Financial Partners, Will Meet with Government and Insurance Leaders to Plan Attack

KANSAS CITY, MO - September 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, by 2025 more than 20 million Americans -- incapacitated athletes and children as well as aging baby boomers -- will need long-term care services. Ordinary health insurance won't cover it. Neither, in all likelihood, will Medicaid, as legislative reform cracks down on benefits claimed by the affluent. Yet, "We can have long-term care protection for every American," says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners LLC, the nation's leading LTC insurance brokerage.

Toward that ambitious goal, his organization is sending over 100 of their Partners, all experts in long-term care protection, to the 2005 National LTCi Producers Summit in Kansas City, MO, at the Westin Crown Center Hotel, October 16-18.

"Almost every American will be seriously affected by this," says Truesdell. "All it takes is for one member of their family to get hurt or sick for a long period." He believes, as do growing numbers of federal and state legislators, that LTC protection should be as common as auto insurance. "We're going to make it happen!" he asserts. "And it all starts here, at this conference."

Over 700 participants are expected, with invited VIP's that include --

* U.S. Senator Kit Bond (R, MO), who has sponsored legislation to give an above-the-line tax deduction to help people afford LTC insurance.

* Christopher Perna, President of MedAmerica.

* Executives from MetLife and John Hancock.

* And key representatives of other carriers and LTC-related organizations.

While immediate disasters command headlines, the long-term care crisis -- which could bankrupt tens of millions -- goes virtually unnoticed. "Most people just don't realize the danger they face," says Truesdell. "They're healthy and bullish about their future. What they don't know is that by living longer, they're exposed to more bouts of incapacity than previous generations were." Those bouts require expensive care not covered by regular insurance. A federal awareness campaign, conducted earlier this year, made promising inroads, but "the vast majority of Americans remain in the dark," says Truesdell. The Kansas City get-together aims to start fixing that, and also to spark an ever-improving set of public and private-sector solutions.

More information is available at: www.eranova.com/LTCFP/kcevent.htm

Truesdell and co-founder Craig Smith are pioneers of their field. They were principals of LTC Inc., founded in 1985 and later sold to GE Capital. Their present organization distinguishes itself as a national organization of specialists who help people find the coverage that's right for them, from multiple leading carriers including MetLife, John Hancock, MedAmerica, Prudential, Allianz, Physicians Mutual, and Unum Provident. "Before Truesdell," says Smith, "long-term care insurance did not exist by that name. It was called nursing home insurance. Truesdell defined the concept and developed the role of specialist. And now we work closely with the carriers and support government iniatives to educate the public and make sound policies available."

The October 16-18 Summit was organized by Jesse R. Slome, Executive Director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.

Not only have we significantly increased our negotiating strength on behalf of our clients, but we have also acquired an amazingly broad range of product lines and expertise thanks to the capabilities of our new parent company. We are very confident in saying that we will provide our clients the most comprehensive and cost effective aviation insurance coverage available anywhere in the world, all delivered with the same high level of personal attention that has become a hallmark of AirSure Limited."

Dell Van Gilder, Chairman of Van Gilder Insurance Corporation, added, "We couldn't be more excited. Adding AirSure Limited to our corporate family greatly increases our presence and depth in the aviation arena, and brings additional capabilities and protection to our customers worldwide."

Previously, Aero Insurance and AirSure Limited were "good, strong competitors," according to Larry Mattiello, president of Aero Insurance. He added, "The senior management at both companies have known each other for years. Together, we'll be a formidable force in the industry, with the strength necessary to provide customers the levels of service and expertise they need to actively pursue their aviation activities knowing they have the right levels of protection and assurance backing them up. This is absolutely critical in the challenging operating environments today's customers find themselves working within, and it is what we do best."

With Government Distracted, Private Program Seeks to Avert New Disaster: Abject End for Millions

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC
Dateline: Wed, 21 Sep 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, WA and KANSAS CITY, MO - September 21 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In June the federal government ended a pilot program to alert the nation to an impending social disaster: millions of longer-living Americans unprepared to survive longer-lasting incapacities. The pilot, run in five states, grew out of a recognition that government could not afford to fund a yawning gap in health coverage. Since life spans have been increasing and 77 million baby boomers are nearing retirement, bouts of incapacity are expected to explode; and ordinary health insurance doesn't cover it, say the experts at LTC Financial Partners.”

Free Information from America's Leading Provider of Long Term Care Insurance from Multiple Carriers

KIRKLAND, WA and KANSAS CITY, MO - September 21 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In June the federal government ended a pilot program to alert the nation to an impending social disaster: millions of longer-living Americans unprepared to survive longer-lasting incapacities. The pilot, run in five states, grew out of a recognition that government could not afford to fund a yawning gap in health coverage. Since life spans have been increasing and 77 million baby boomers are nearing retirement, bouts of incapacity are expected to explode; and ordinary health insurance doesn't cover it, say the experts at LTC Financial Partners.

Called the Long Term Care Consumer Awareness Campaign, the terminated federal pilot was to be revived and go national with an infusion of new funding. That seems unlikely now that other priorities compete for an overextended budget. A private initiative, however, is stepping up to the plate. Announced today, the Long Term Care Outreach & Education Program (LTCOEP) will dispense free information in print, online, and by phone. Any American individual, company, or non-profit may request a free guidebook, consultation, and other help at www.eranova.com/LTCFP/contact.htm.

The educational program is offered by Long Term Care Financial Partners LLC, America's leading provider of long term care insurance from multiple carriers. It will be staffed by the organization's 100-plus Partners, all experts in the field.

The need for LTCOEP is great, according to Cameron Truesdell, CEO. "Most people don't realize the danger they're in, just from living longer," he says. "Americans are healthier than ever. That's good, but they don't see the downside. With longer life spans there's more time for them to have periods of downtime -- and most aren't protected by long term care insurance." That spells potential misery, he asserts: sudden impoverishment followed by a hard life and depressing end to it all. "Elder poverty sits there waiting, like a vulture, even for the well-off. But it doesn't have to get you."

On October 16-18 at the 2005 National LTCi Producers Summit in Kansas City, Truesdell and over 100 of his Partners will congregate to advance their educational program. In special sessions with professional guests, they will explore ways to bring the long term care problem and solution directly to Americans, and indirectly in affiliation with banks, financial advisors, insurance brokers, associations, and businesses seeking to protect their employees. Information on the event is available at www.eranova.com/LTCFP/kc.htm.

Truesdell and co-founder Craig Smith are pioneers in their field. They were principals of LTC Inc., founded in 1985 and later sold to GE Capital. Their present organization distinguishes itself by offering carefully selected insurance products from multiple leading carriers including Allianz, MetLife, MedAmerica, Prudential, John Hancock, Physicians Mutual, and Unum Provident.

Long Term Care Insurance Brokerage Announces Chain of Press Information Websites

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC
Dateline: Tue, 06 Sep 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, Wash. - September 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Partners of LTC Financial Partners LLC (with offices across the country) want to be the best sources of long term care insurance information in their local areas. To that end, the organization announced today a chain of websites that will feed facts to the press. The sites are also available to the general public.”

In Most Areas, Facts from Local Experts Now Available to Reporters, Broadcasters, and the Public

KIRKLAND, Wash. - September 6, 2005 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Partners of LTC Financial Partners LLC (with offices across the country) want to be the best sources of long term care insurance information in their local areas. To that end, the organization announced today a chain of websites that will feed facts to the press. The sites are also available to the general public.

"Most Americans don't realize the danger they're in and how to protect themselves," says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners. "Local newspapers, radio, TV, magazines, newsletters, and blogs can spread the word and really make a difference. Our Partners will give them the ammunition."

The danger, Truesdell explains, stems from a gap in health insurance protection. "Regular insurance doesn't cover the care you need for longer-lasting injuries or illnesses." Long term care insurance, a relatively new instrument, is designed to pay for nursing home care, assisted living, and home health care, "which can drain your assets if you're not covered," Truesdell says. "People need to realize how easily they can avert disaster -- just by filling the insurance gap."

Earlier this year the federal government and five states launched a "Long-Term Care Consumer Awareness Campaign" to combat the ignorance. "But the funding ran out in June," says Truesdell, "so our experts are taking up the gauntlet."


Each local website offers -

* A growing series of press releases,

* Story-angle suggestions (offering provocative topics for reporters and broadcasters, and ideas for program chairs who would like the expert to speak to their group),

* A biography of the expert,

* And other data including breaking information on the Internet.

Truesdell's organization -- which has a national footprint -- is providing its advisory and brokerage services through a growing number of alliances with major banks, NRL Federal Credit Union, the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, and the National Association of Insurance Women. Alliances with sports franchises are in the works, "To protect at-risk players, and to drive home the fact that LTC protection is for all active, vigorous people, as well as aging Americans," Truesdell says.

A list of the press information websites is available at www.eranova.com/LTCFP/partners.htm

An informational guidebook may be requested at www.eranova.com/LTCFP/contact.htm

Insured Offshore Energy Losses from Katrina Projected at $2 Billion – Estimated $300 Million Will Never Be Collected

Author: Insurance Data Systems
Dateline: Wed, 31 Aug 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “DALLAS, TX - August 31 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- According to Insurance Data Systems, an estimated $300,000,000 in insured damage from Katrina will be uncollected because energy companies do not aggressively pursue full claims payment. Insurance Data Systems is a Dallas, Texas based firm specializing in assisting energy companies in collecting on complex insurance claims.”

DALLAS, TX - August 31 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- According to Insurance Data Systems, an estimated $300,000,000 in insured damage from Katrina will be uncollected because energy companies do not aggressively pursue full claims payment. Insurance Data Systems is a Dallas, Texas based firm specializing in assisting energy companies in collecting on complex insurance claims.

According to Richard Kerr, Chairman of Insurance Data Systems in Dallas, Texas, "The underwriters for energy companies are very bright, honest people. If you approach them in an organized fashion with a reasonable position, they will listen and respond appropriately. Their intention is to give you a fair settlement. However, you must put forth the effort to prove you are due the money. You would be surprised how often money is left on the table."

Hurricane Katrina raged through the exploration fields of offshore Louisiana with 160mph winds accompanied by 40-foot waves. Damage assessments are under way as "fly bys" in fixed wing aircraft begin to determine which facilities were hardest hit. So far, things don't look good. According to Rigzone.com, major companies such as Transocean, Diamond Offshore Drilling, Pride Oil Co., GlobalSantaFe and ENSCO had rigs in the path of Hurricane Katrina. Damage estimates are currently unavailable. Many production platforms have suffered serious property damage. With crude at close to $70 per barrel, the loss of income will be significant.

The oil and gas industry is insured by a specific set of underwriters including several large U.S. based insurers and many Lloyd's Syndicates and London Companies. These insurers retain third party adjustors to determine how much they must pay. The insurance company pays the adjustor, so it is unlikely the adjustor will be as aggressive as an independent party when recommending claims payment. As a result, many oil and gas companies who suffer damage from Hurricane Katrina could receive less insurance reimbursement than possible if they are not well organized and tenacious in their communications with underwriters.

According to Kerr, "Smart energy companies engage a third party consultant to work with the insurance companies. The consultants' experience with engineering, insurance and legal issues can yield independent, objective advice which frequently results in substantially larger claims settlements."

Insuring offshore facilities costs the energy industry hundreds of millions of dollars in premiums. Payment of these premiums directly affects the bottom line. The bottom line gets a "double whammy" if, after a claim occurs, proper effort is not taken to assure full payment of the claim.

IDS estimates reveal over $220,000,000 of compensable claims remain outstanding from Hurricane Ivan. Even if oil is at $70 per barrel, $220,000,000 spread among the various damaged companies would certainly enhance their bottom line. Energy companies damaged by Hurricane Ivan should retain an independent energy claims consultant to assure they left no money on the table, particularly since consultants like IDS work on a percentage of what is recovered in excess of the "final proof of loss". Any amount the consultant recovers would go straight to the bottom line. Shareholders like tenacious management teams who watch the bottom line.

Insurance Data Systems (IDS) is a holding company involved in developing innovative solutions for corporate insurance buyers. IDS has assembled a team of technical experts to assist oil and gas companies in resolving offshore energy claims using a unique compensation model, whereby IDS is paid only if the insured recovers more money.

For more information, please contact IDS at their Dallas office at 972 934 4224 or email vscott@marketscout.com.
