  • Increasing Long Term Care insurance cost

    Asked on 5/25/2011

    Our Long Term Care insurance provider has notified us of a 15% premium increase to maintain current coverage. An alternative is to continue the current premium for reduced coverage. A final choice is to accept a paid up benefit (very small). How can we decide what to do?
