From a Life Care Funding Group press release:
(June 28, 2011)– Chris Orestis, the CEO of Life Care Funding Group will open the second day of the annual meeting for the American Health Care Association’s State Associations’ Executive Directors on August 5th. The presentation will focus on the implications for long term care providers of the Life Insurance Consumer Disclosure Model Law passed unanimously in November, 2010 by the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL).
A number of states including California, Connecticut, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, Oregon, Washington State, Virginia and Wisconsin already have passed or are now considering “life insurance consumer” disclosure laws for their states.
The law requires that life insurance companies inform policy holders above the age of 60, or with a terminal or chronic condition, that there are eight approved alternatives to the lapse or surrender of a life insurance policy. NCOIL declared that final passage of the Life Insurance Consumer Disclosure Model Law is intended to be “a strong stand for life insurance policy owners and would empower consumers through education about their options.”
