New Option for LTCi Claim Payments

Now your clients have another option for receiving long-term care benefits. Benefit payments can now be sent via EFT (electronic funds transfer). This will allow customers or their providers to receive claim payments faster by electronically transferring benefit payments direct to their bank accounts. Please note: this is only available on the LTC13, LTC09M, LTC09U, LTC06UI, LTC04I7, LTC004I and LTC04G. Notification of the new EFT option is currently being included with all long-term care payments, and will be included in the LTCi claim packet by year end.   If you have any questions, please contact Mutual of Omaha’s Sales Support
