Long Term Care – Wake up, don’t snooze and lose!

You’ve heard it a thousand times, “You snooze, you lose!”  And to some degree, it’s true!  Meaning, if you don’t rush out to the store, you’ll probably miss out on that great sale; hence, paying more for that item.  But that’s okay, it’s happened to all of us. ...

We began our journey to find LTC about a year before we finally connected with Ray. Before that, we frustratingly encountered several insurance professionals in the business of providing LTC Insurance that pressured us to make quick decisions and most often disregarded our questions or concerns about what seemed like an a overwhelmingly complicated insurance decision because of the variety of polices that include an array of benefit options and costs. We also tried to navigate and figure out the complex choices on our own, but that didn’t really go so well either. For us, the options were just too many and too vast. We wanted to know that we were making an educated and sound choice that would serve us well should the day come that we need to use the LTC policy. We wanted guidance from someone professional and knowledgeable to help us figure out how to get the most out of a policy that would best suit our needs for such a big decision. Lucky for us, we were connected to Ray Voelkle through the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance. Ray spent months answering our questions, providing complete explanations about the variety of nuances and options, and consistently responded to us in ways (email, telephone) that accommodated our busy schedules and us. Ray took the time to get to know us and understand what we were trying to accomplish in procuring a policy, and never once pressured us to make a decision, nor a decision one way or the other about any particular policy. Ray was there for us from the moment we were connected with him, every step of the way. We are more than confident about the choice we finally made, and grateful for the patience, understanding, guidance, insight, and service we received from Ray.
