Marc Glickman is a highly respected long-term care insurance (LTCi) actuary. Marc is also a good friend who keeps me updated on the numbers side of our business. He recently conducted an informal survey of active producers in the industry, with some very interesting results about working with a LTCi Specialist like me.
Insurance Generalists, unlike me, only turn about five percent of their quotes for LTCi coverage into applications. The rate for LTCi Specialists like me is about 25%. This tells me Generalists may not know how to describe and prescribe LTCi well.
And only 60% of Generalist-submitted applications actually become issued policies. LTCi specialists (like me!) get about 80% of client applications approved. My own success rate is higher than 80%.
Not surprisingly, specialists have the training to understand and respond to client needs in this niche market. They (We) have years of practice and experience in successfully submitting applications for our clients.
You Can Rely on Your LTCi Specialist
Marc reports that LTCi specialists can be at least five times more effective at getting clients coverage.
We LTCi specialists also have more products to choose from. We have the experience to design the ideal, customized solution. This creates highly informed, confident, and satisfied clients.
