KIRKLAND, Wash., June 27, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Today LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP) announces a free service to help consumers learn about the financial risk of needing long-term care someday, and how to manage the risk. The service blends the best of technology with the best of humanity: real, live advisors on the phone. It's a simple two-step process:

STEP 1: The consumer goes online to use a Cost-for-Care calculator that displays the going rate for care in their state or metropolitan area. The calculator shows costs per day, month, or year for care in a nursing home, assisted living facility, adult day care center, or one's own home with a health aide.

STEP 2: The consumer then places a call to a local advisor to learn their options for managing the costs through LTC insurance.

"Step 1 is likely to blow people's minds," says Denise Gott, National Sales Manager and Chairman of the Board of LTCFP. "Most people have no idea how expensive care can be. It's through the roof now and likely to be in the stratosphere years from now when they need it."

Step 2 may be an eye-opener too, but in the opposite direction, according to Gott. "Most people have no idea how affordable LTC insurance premiums can be, especially if they shop around and sign up early." When consumers call one of the participating advisors, listed below, they first answer questions about their age, health, state of residence, financial situation, and care benefits they want. The advisor, who is a licensed agent specializing in this coverage, then responds by supplying costs for policies from competing carriers. "Rates can vary widely depending on the carrier and other factors," says Gott.

The calculator, supplied by one of the carriers LTCFP represents, is available at http://www.johnhancockltc.com/individual/cost-of-long-term-care-calculator/ .
