Long term care coverage is the the best tax favored, discriminatory executive benefit that your CEO hasn\'t considered for his or her portfolio or bonus and the most useful voluntary benefit you have likely not offered your employees. Add into this mix the new Partnership Laws in many states that allow for Medicaid offset and asset protection, preferrred group underwriting and rates and you have a benefit that your employees and executives alike will appriciate. Do you offer a world class benefit benefit package? Not if you don\'t offer LTC!
