NU Online News Service, Oct. 8, 2003, 4:31 p.m. EST – The Insurance Marketplace Standards Association, Washington, has published a 12-page consumer guide to buying long term care insurance.

The brochure discusses topics such as the cost of long term care, determining how much LTC insurance an individual needs and the value of a “secure” rating from IMSA as an indicator that an insurer will still be around to pay claims.
