Two long term care insurance sales and marketing firms have merged, announcing plans to focus on supporting brokers and agents in individual and group markets.

LTC Associates Inc., Omaha, Neb., and IFC National Marketing Inc., Fairmont, Minn., combined to establish a new company operating under the IFC National name.

Gary A. Katelman will be national LTC director of the new enterprise, which will have offices in both locations.

The firm says it will provide sales and enrollment assistance to producers serving individual, multilife and small employer markets.
