Pre-Qualifying Or Underwriting A Long-Term Care Plan is Essential
One of the obvious challenges of Long-Term Care (LTC) Planning can be taking your clients through the underwriting process. Regardless of the insurance solution is selected, your client will need a "thumbs up" from the insurance carrier before a plan can be implemented. That means any discussion about LTC will eventually have to include a review of a client's current health and health history. Additionally, underwriting requirements for LTC will be determined by the actual insurance solution under consideration.
This doesn't mean you need to be an M.D. or have a Master's degree in biology however, you will need to ask clients about their medical history and that can get "interesting" sometimes.
To make the process as smooth as possible, we recommend you simply download the Medical Questionnaire below, put it in front of your clients, and ask them to complete it. To ensure the most effective and positive underwriting outcomes, consider forwarding the form to us for a review. If there's further info needed or complicated medical issues necessary to assess, we can help you work through the process to reach the best possible outcome.
