What is the Members-Only Zone?
The Zone contains current news and comments that we hope will empower LTCI
agents, senior advisers, LTC providers and others to serve their prospects and
clients more knowledgeably and professionally. This portion of the website is
restricted to those who actively support the Center through their generous
contributions. Although the Center would prefer to share all of our information
and analysis with everyone for free, we believe it is important to reward our
contributors for enabling us to continue working toward our common goal of
quality long-term care for all Americans. We will realize our objectives only
with the continued backing of supporters like you!

“LTC Bullets”: Authored
by CLTCR president Stephen Moses, “LTC Bullets” is our informative
newsletter covering the latest developments in long-term care financing.
Subject matter generally includes: analysis

marketability of LTC insurance; awareness of the link between private financing
and quality services; politics and legislation (including extensive information
on the Deficit Reduction Act); and demographics and other data. You can expect
to receive one or two LTC Bullets per week via email.
Over 800 informative “LTC Bullets” dating back to 1998 are archived
by date and subject and are available for your reference on the CLTCR website.
“LTC E-Alerts”: Stephen
Moses scans the e-media looking for news
items that will help LTC professionals stay current on critical issues in the
