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!

As a CLTCR member, here is a brief description of what you’ll get.

“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 of proposals offered for remedying the LTC financing crisis; addressing inaccuracies that occur in the media; the effects of Medicaid planning on the 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 field of long-term care service delivery and financing.  We publish these brief mental vitamins and send them directly to your email.  They, like “LTC Bullets,” are archived on our website. 

Latest Features: Includes the latest installments of our:  

  • "LTC GRADUATE SEMINAR TRANSCRIPTION": Transcription of the two-hour program presented dozens of times to highly positive reviews during the Center for Long-Term Care Reform's 2008 National Long-Term Care Consciousness Tour.
  • “Deductibility Limits for Long-Term Care Insurance:  LTCi deductibility limits updated annually.  1997 - current.
  • Medicaid and Medicare Key Numbers Updated Annually
  • “Unfunded Entitlement Liabilities:  Various articles and reports including data on unfunded entitlement liabilities.
  • “LTC Almanac:  Find in a moment any data, statistic, article, report or answer about long-term care you need.  Updated with new data frequently.
  • “LTC Embed Reports”:  Brief on-site reports from the policy front in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere, wherever the LTC policy battle takes us.
  • “Long-Term Care Cost Surveys”:  MetLife Mature Market Institute and Genworth Financial surveys, with comments by Stephen Moses.
  • “Reasons Why Veterans Should Not Depend on VA Benefits for Long-Term Care”
  • “LTCi Tax Treatments”:  Includes information on states with tax incentives for long-term care insurance.
  • Virtual Visits”:  We cover LTCi conferences for those who could not attend.  Includes comments, interviews and photos.

The Members-Only Zone is constantly under construction. We are eager to hear your comments and ideas. If you have information you think fellow contributors need to know, please submit your ideas to the Center staff at info@centerltc.com for consideration. Once again, thank you for your continuing interest, feedback and support.
