"Long-Term Care Insurance v. a Hybrid: AALTCI Gets the Numbers," by Allison Bell, ThinkAdvisor
 
"The American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI) has come out with a new long-term care (LTC) benefits product cost comparison analysis. AALTCI looked at how much a consumer might pay to get long-term care benefits through a stand-alone long-term care insurance policy, versus how much the same consumer might pay to get the same amount of benefits through a life insurance policy that offers LTC benefits.”
