The Obama administration has juiced up a major long-term care insurance (LTCI) outreach campaign by expressing concern about the future of the “CLASS” program.
Newspapers and websites throughout the world are now running “Demise of Obama Long-Term Care Plan Leaves Gap,” an article by Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar that was distributed by the Associated Press.
The article is appearing shortly after the conclusion of the LTCI community’s 3 in 4 Need More LTCI awareness campaign.
Alonso-Zaldivar writes – in a message carried by publications whose owners buy ink, and digital ink, by the barrelful – that long-term care is “the one major health expense for which nearly all Americans are uninsured.”
“The dilemma of paying for long-term care is likely to worsen now that the Obama administration pulled the plug on a program seen as a first step,” Alonso-Zaldivar continues.
