    Wow. At age 64 (just got my Medicare card in the mail yesterday) and a professional insurance agent since 1978 or so), this really stinks. For the insureds and our profession.

    Great article Arthur. Thank you for sharing.
    That is a damning marketing piece from CNA.

    Yep. NYL and NWM are on it. Probably knew about it and had that article ready before it was even published.

    This just seems like another facet of discussions in which desirable members of society are seen as something like those between 25 and 60 capable of earning over $100K per year and all others are a burden in some form or another.

    Louis Lamour wrote a short story in which the problem of the aged and infirm was dealt with in another way. In the spring, the tribe came down from the mountains, crossed a river and grazed their flocks on a pleasant plain all summer. In the fall, they crossed the river and went back across the river and into the mountains for the winter. Those who could not cope with recrossing the river or dealing with icy mountain ledges stayed on the plain and died sometime during the ensuing winter without family support or help.

    New long-term care insurance: have lots of kids and treat them well enough that they'll return the favor in time.
