A Webinar On The CLASS Act

Many followers of my blog, also are members of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance and have attended our Producer Summits. If you have, you know that Claude Thau and Dawn Helwig are two of the brightest minds in this industry. They are both dear friends and of enormous help to what we do. Allen too!

So I am pleased to share information about a webinar these folks are doing that will deal with the CLASS Act. Here is more information.

The CLASS Act has been included in every major health care reform proposal in recent months, including President Obama's proposal to the Health Care Summit. If you would like to learn more about this long-term care insurance (LTCi) industry-changing proposal, please join Claude Thau of Thau, Inc. and Allen Schmitz and Dawn Helwig of Milliman, Inc. for a WebEx presentation on Thursday, March 11th, at 2:00 Central time.

It will cover the basics of the proposals, as well as several analyses of the program. In addition, we will discuss the ramifications of this bill for the private long-term care industry. Will it create a market for supplemental coverage? Will it increase private LTCi sales or result in further sales decline? Who will the program appeal to and what kind of anti-selection will result?"

They are charging a fee of $25 to participate.

To register for the Webinar, email your name and email address to

Claude will send you a "CLASS Act" invoice from PayPal that will allow you to use PayPal or a credit card to pay the $25 fee. After your $25 fee payment is received, Claude will send you the link for the web presentation and the long-distance phone number for the audio portion.
