Conseco Looks To LTC Profits In 2008

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

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.

The company is predicting that 2 rounds of premium increases will help it collect an additional $57 million from holders of existing policies.

Conseco also has tightened claim-management procedures, executives said.
