Long-Term Care Underwriting
Simple issues to note:

Age – Coverage is often limited at age 80 and above.
Saving age can be done 30 days from date of birth.
Height and Weight – an imbalanced height to weight ratio may be all you
need to take your client out of the “preferred” ball park.
Medical Records are helpful if you can obtain them in a trial situation.
Cognitive Ability – carriers will assess basic common sense through a variety
of questions that may seem redundant or juvenile. It is important for your
clients to be aware that this is a part of the process.
Vendors – Paramedic companies and Phone interviewing entities represent
our reputation but often forget this important face. One wrong turn with a
examiner or an interviewer can set your client running. Resource Brokerage,
LTC has the “liaison of requirement” program that reduces the chance of a
challenge such as this occurring on your business.
