Using Inflation Protection to Reach a Desired Premium
The cost of everything from gas to groceries is certain to be higher down the road. The same is true for long-term care services. That’s an important reason to recommend your clients purchase a long-term care policy and that they include an inflation protection rider for an added measure of security.
At today’s prices, most people simply can’t afford to pay for long-term care services out of their own pockets. With the national average cost of a home health aide approaching
