Top executives of Conseco Inc. say they expect the company’s closed block of long term care insurance policies to turn a profit in 2008.

In a conference call with investors, Jim Prier, chief executive of Conseco, Carmel, Ind., said cost-cutting and premium increases should put the LTC block in the black by Dec. 31, 2008.

Conseco increased reserves for the closed block by $110 million in the second quarter alone.
