NU Online News Service, July 14, 2003, 4:48 p.m. EDT – Long term care insurance sales will probably continue to grow, but many companies in the individual LTC market are having a hard time with pricing their products, controlling their operating costs and managing their investments, according to a new report by analysts at Conning Research and Consulting Inc., New York.
