A One-Stop Shop for All Care Information — An Industry First

KIRKLAND, Wash. – Oct. 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — For the first time, comprehensive information on long term care providers plus information on how to pay for it will be available from a single source: a national network of 380-plus long term care specialists. Today, LTC Financial Partners (LTCFP), the nation’s most experienced long term care insurance brokerage, announced a partnership with CareScout, creator of the first quality-of-care ratings on nursing homes and home health agencies in America. The alliance will bring disparate financial and care information together under one national umbrella.

Since 1977 Care Scout has been helping families find quality eldercare resources and providers, and has been a reliable partner of some of America’s largest corporations and insurance carriers. The partnership with LTC Financial Partners combines care provider information with the insurance information already provided by LTCFP.

“We think it’s a breakthrough for consumers and organizations alike,” says Cahn. “Now our clients can ‘get it all’ through a single well-informed expert. That includes quality-of-care ratings as well as access to more than 90,000 home health agencies, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, adult day health facilities, and hospice agencies – plus, clients can access CareScout’s Care Advocacy & Discount Program for finding great eldercare at preferred pricing. The discounts alone are impressive; they can exceed $9,000 in savings for a client per year for a skilled nursing facility stay.”
