Letters: Long-term care

May 07, 2012

I have always appreciated the ADA-sponsored insurance options ("ADA-Sponsored Plans Stand Out Among Insurance Options for Member Dentists," April 23 ADA News) but would love to see the ADA Insurance Plans offer long-term care insurance, something many of us will likely need in our later years.

I understand that Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance Co., an ADA partner for 78 years, does not underwrite these types of policies. Therefore, why not have the ADA Council on Members Insurance and Retirement Programs offer a policy through an underwriter who does provide long-term care policies?

Editor’s note: The Council on Members Insurance and Retirement Plans appreciates the suggestion from Dr. Hutchinson and will be evaluating opportunities to add additional products to the ADA portfolio, including long-term care insurance.
