OVERLAND PARK, Kan., March 28, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The National LTC Network announces its immediate past Chairman, Mike Skiens, is featured in an article on long term care planning in Kiplinger's Retirement Report (March 2014).

"Options for Covering Long-Term-Care Costs" shares strategies that can help people cover long term care costs while also keeping premiums manageable. Among the realities facing long term care insurance shoppers today, for instance, are sex-distinct pricing that makes LTC coverage more expensive for women, and the fact that medical eligibility guidelines for LTC insurance are now tougher than in the past.

The dynamic landscape of long term care insurance is one reason Skiens gives the following advice in the article, recommending individuals work with long-term-care (LTC) insurance specialists: "They'll (specialists) know which insurer will give the consumer the greatest opportunity to get a preferred or standard rate. We can do a prequalification of that person's health and ask the insurer about the rating class before a client applies."

"MasterCare recognizes the important role of LTC Specialists in the planning process," said Skiens, adding, "The firm is committed to professional long term care planning and we quite literally exist to educate, serve and support LTC Specialists."
