10 Things You Should Know About Buying Long-Term Care Insurance

Long-Term Care is Different From Traditional Medical Care
Someone with a prolonged physical illness, a disability or a cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer s disease often needs long-term care. Long-term care services may include help with daily activities, home health care, respite care, hospice care, adult day care, care in a nursing home or care in an assisted living facility.

Long-Term Care Can be Expensive
The cost depends on the amount and type of care you need and where you get it. In 2001, the national average cost of nursing home care was $56,000 per year, assisted living facilities reported $22,476 per year and home care costs ranged from $12,000 to $16,000 per year.

You Have Options When Paying for Long-Term Care
People pay for long-term care in a variety of ways. These include using personal resources, long-term care insurance and Medicaid for those who qualify. Medicare, Medicare supplement insurance and health insurance you may have at work usually will not pay for long-term care. Long-term care insurance will pay for some or all of your long-term care.

Decide Whether Long-Term Care Insurance is for You
Whether you should buy a long-term care insurance policy will depend on your age, health status overall retirement goals, income and assets. For instance, if your only source of income is a Social Security benefit or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you probably should not buy long-term care insurance since you may not be able to afford the premium. On the other hand, if you have a large amount of assets but do not want to use them to pay for long-term care, you may want to buy a long-term care insurance policy. Many people buy a policy because they want to stay independent of government aid or the help of family. They don t want to burden anyone with having to care for them. However, you should not buy a policy if you can t afford the premium or are not sure you can pay the premium for the rest of your life.

Pre-Existing Condition Limitations
A long-term care insurance policy usually defines a pre-existing condition as one for which you received medical advice or treatment or had symptoms within a certain period before you applied for the policy. Some companies look further back in time than others. Many companies will sell a policy to someone with a pre-existing condition. However, the company may not pay benefits for long-term care related to that condition for a period after the policy goes into effect, usually six months. Some companies have longer pre-existing condition periods or none at all.

Know Where to Look for Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-term care insurance is available to you in several different forms. You can buy an individual policy from a private insurance company or agent, or you can buy coverage under a group policy through an employer or association membership. The federal government and several state governments offer long-term care insurance coverage to their employees, retirees and their families. You can also get long-term care benefits through a life insurance policy. Some states have long-term care insurance programs designed to help people with the financial impact of spending down to meet Medicaid eligibility standards. Check with your state insurance department or counseling program to see if these policies are available in your state.

Check With Several Companies and Agents
Contact several companies and agents before you buy a long-term care policy. Be sure to compare benefits, the types of facilities covered, limits on your coverage, what is not covered and the premium. Policies from different insurance companies often have the same coverage and benefits but may not cost the same. Be sure to ask companies about their rate increase history and whether they have increased the rates on the long-term care insurance policies.

Don t be Misled by Advertising
Most celebrity endorsers are professional actors paid to advertise, not insurance experts. It is also important to note that Medicare does not endorse or sell long-term care insurance policies, so be wary of advertising that suggests Medicare is involved. Do not trust cards you get in the mail that look like official government documents until you check with the government agency identified on the card.

Make Sure the Insurance Company is Reputable
To help you find out if an insurance company is reliable, you can take the following actions: Stop before you sign anything, call your state insurance department and confirm that the insurance company is licensed to do business in your state. After you make sure they are licensed, check the financial stability of the company by checking their ratings. You can get ratings from some insurer rating services for free at most public libraries.

Review Your Contract Carefully
When you purchase long-term care insurance, your company should send you a policy. You should read the policy and make certain you understand its contents. If you have questions about your insurance policy, contact your insurance agent for clarification. If you still have questions, turn to your state insurance department or insurance counseling program.

Secure For Yourselves Bright Careers With American Century University Medical, Or Pharmacy Certificate Courses, Or Associate Degree, Or Bachelor Degree, Or Master Degree, Or Doctoral Degree In Health Care Management In The U.S.A.

PROGRAM SUCCESS AND CREDENTIALS

ACHIEVEMENTS:
American Century University of USA has offered affordable distance learning to working people throughout the world for the past 30 years. American Century University has serviced over 13, 000 students, toward Bachelors. Masters, and Doctorates in various disciplines. Alumni of American Century University are self-employed or hold high positions of responsibility in many countries of the world. If the proof of the pudding is in the eating, then students and organizations that sponsored them have thoroughly enjoyed eating. American Century University has achieved at a fraction of the cost of what similar degrees would have cost in a traditional learning university.

OBJECTIVE:
American Century University sees its objective in catering all those who, for whatever reason, did not have the opportunity to pursue their academic career in the classical manner. American Century University wants to organize a ‘second chance’ for the many who are already at work, whose thirst for knowledge and ambition for self-fulfillment are not extinguished but who cannot possibly take leave from their job and responsibilities. It addresses very specifically the needs of bright people for advance learning in the developing economies where traditional learning is not available or too expensive, or not able to respond to specific academic challenges of the knowledge economy. American Century University satisfies the desire for advanced learning of anyone who wants to share in the academic excellence of the world.

TESTIMONIALS:
Many students can affirm the value of their American Century University Degree.

In the words of American Century University Doctoral Degree Graduate, Ward Roofthooft, Ph.D.,

A new world; A new way of learning:

Wherever we are in the world, whatever the state of our economy may be, whichever way our career may take us, the one inescapable truth is that we already or will soon be in a ‘knowledge economy’. Knowledge is the foundations for research and development. It is the dominant factor in production and distribution. It is the strategic edge in marketing. Knowledge products and services create a multitude of the added value that was created by classical products and services. In such an economy, we will only be successful through permanent learning.

While knowledge has taken a giant leap in the quest for control of the economy, the acquisition of knowledge has not kept in step with the accelerated speed of knowledge itself. While knowledge is the subject of a REVOLUTION, learning still seems to be moving as an EVOLUTION. Learning is slowly emerging from the futile encyclopedic dream of Diderot and d’Alembert to the knowledge guzzling economy of today. Chances are that this style of learning will never get where it is supposed to go. For while knowledge moves around with dazzling speed on the computer software highway, learning is still mainly confined to the old-fashioned brick-and-mortar classrooms of yesterday.

The world has changed and is changing with ever-faster speed. Knowledge has exploded. It is about time that the acquisition of knowledge puts itself up to date. University studies in particular should not any longer be locked up exclusively in old buildings with ivy-grown facades. Let the new means of communication come in and take their rightful place in this quest for knowledge that is already shaping our world of today and tomorrow.

LICENSURE:
American Century University is licensed by the Higher Education Department of the State of New Mexico located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, U.S.A. and the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education in Sacramento, California, U.S.A.

Master of Microbiology (MS)

School of Science and Engineering
Atlantic International University

The Master of Microbiology (MS) program objective is to provide students with knowledge in the basic sciences which are essential to microbiology and to the application of science to issues in the modern world. The Master of Microbiology (MS) program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Master of Microbiology (MS) curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to market opportunities in the student s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.

Adult Fast Track

Accelerated Programs for Motivated Adults

The College of DuPage Adult Fast Track program (AFT) is an accelerated program for adults 21 years and older who are seriously committed to continuing their education, but require accommodation for their busy lifestyles. While the Adult Fast Track program is intensive and rigorous, it is manageable for individuals who are highly motivated and self-disciplined. Students may take individual selected courses or complete an entire degree in this alternative format.

Degrees and Certificates Available

Students may earn an Associate in Arts (AA) degree, an Associate in Applied Sciences (AAS) degree in Management, and a Certificate in Management, Supervision, Entrepreneurship or Organizational Leadership. More degrees and certificates will be available in the future. Students may also enroll in a variety of core general education and/or elective courses that can then be used to satisfy the requirements of other degrees or certificate programs.

Course Scheduling

AFT courses start and end on uniform dates during both the first and second eight-week segments of the fall and spring semester. (One eight-week segment is offered during the summer semester, as well.) Classes typically meet in the evenings or on Saturday mornings. AFT courses are offered at five convenient locations: the main campus in Glen Ellyn, the Addison, Carol Stream, Naperville and Westmont Centers.

Admission Criteria

  • Students must be 21 years of age or older.
  • Students enrolled in traditional COD programs may enroll in AFT courses if they meet the age requirement.
  • Students of other colleges or universities attending COD are also invited to enroll in AFT courses if they are at least 21 years of age.

Adult Fast Track students are subject to placement testing and prerequisite requirements. We encourage all AFT students to begin working toward the completion of their degree-level math requirement(s) early in their studies, and to complete a degree-level math course(s) by the time they have earned 30 college credit hours.

Angel Kearns Adult Fast Track

“None of this would be possible without the dedication College of DuPage has for its students. I feel smarter. I feel like a better person. I’m going to contribute something. This experience has taught me that I’m stronger than I thought. Coming in, I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this. It has made me a better, stronger woman and a role model for my children.”


  • Rita Kuzmenko Adult Fast Track

    “The Fast Track program is created to better fit into the schedule of working adults. However, the courses are not easier and, in fact, students are often doing the work of an entire semester in one eight-week course. Prioritization is crucial,” Rita Kuzmenko said. “But when a person finishes the program, they have truly earned their degree. The Fast Track Program prepared me well for the degrees I earned afterward.”


  • Susan Neustrom Adult Fast Track

    “The lesson I learned from my experience at COD is that the value of education is not only what you learn in the textbooks. Book knowledge is great, but the real value of education is that it opens your mind to possibilities, allows you to reflect on your inner self, and helps you to discover your true potential and purpose in life.”

    Loans for continuing education

    Finding adult student loans

    With continuous advancements in technology and recent shifts in the job market, the demand for continuing education and career training for adults has perhaps never been stronger. The U.S. Department of Education estimates that nearly 90 million Americans engage in some form of formal adult education each year, and it also notes that four college students in ten are currently 25 years of age or older.

    If you’re one of those nontraditional-aged students trying to figure out how to finance your next degree the good news is that loans to go back to school are available.

    Know your options when it comes to loans for continuing education

    While many continuing education students are aware of the Federal Direct PLUS Loan, it’s helpful to get familiar with private loan options as well. For students attending at least half time in a degree-granting program, our Citizens Bank Student Loan offers a choice of repayment options, as well as an interest rate reduction for automatic payment deduction from any eligible Citizens Bank account.

    Learn more about the affordable Citizens Bank Student Loan for continuing education

    Check out our helpful online student borrowing resources, so you can make the best decision for your situation. Also, find helpful information about the Citizens Bank Student Loan for adults attending at least half time in a degree program.
