Long Term Care (LTC) Coverage

According to the CDC, Americans are now living longer than the generations before them. That fact coupled with rising health care costs across the nation is leaving many of the elderly exposed to the limitations and shortcomings of Medicare and Medicaid – the need for Long-Term Care (LTC) coverage has never been more important.
