Sharing is caring!
The individual Long Term Care market is changing. Most insurers are moving toward gender based pricing which will increase the cost for most women purchasing new policies. There are a few states that haven’t approved the practice and some are looking to ban it- but the majority of states will see gender pricing.
The good news is that gender-based pricing is not allowed on employer-sponsored Long Term Care Plans. This should translate to a savings of 30-60% for female employees and has a negligible impact on males. In addition, employer sponsored plans generally see less restrictive underwriting with potentially better benefits and the convenience of payment though payroll deduction.
