At AoCP, it is our mission to educate consumers about long-term care and planning for retirement.
More than just buying a policy
When you sign on with AoCP, the relationship doesn’t end after you’ve purchased your policy. Our company fosters an ongoing relationship with policy holders through an enlightening online give-and-take education program.
Ongoing support through interactive webinars
From the application phase onward, AoCP provides continuing support to all clients. This is accomplished through monthly informational webinars. Every month, from the comfort of home, AoCP clients can listen, ask questions and interact with our in-house Geriatric Care Manager – a national speaker in the industry.
AoCP educates consumers, helping them examine:
♦ what long-term care is
♦ what long-term care costs
♦ various funding avenues
♦ how is it paid for
♦ insurance options
At AoCP, we will remain steadfast in our commitment to consumer education for years to come.
DID YOU KNOW?
According to the US Dept of Health and Human Services website, www.longtermcare.gov, the following is true:
- 70% of people turning age 65 can expect to use some form of long-term care during their lives.
- People say, “I can save enough on my own to cover the costs.” In fact, less than 1/3rd of Americans 50+ have even begun saving for long-term care. It can be expensive and may endanger your retirement savings and other savings.
- People say, “Under Medicaid, my home is ‘exempt’ from being liquidated.” In fact, every state has a limit on the amount of equity one can have in one’s primary residence and still qualify for Medicaid. And most states eventually recoup their Medicaid expenditures from the dead Medicaid recipient’s estate, including the proceeds from the eventual sale of the residence by the kids who inherit it.
