Minnesota Own Your Future - Long-Term Care Insurance Awareness Campaign

“Own Your Future”, a long-term care insurance awareness campaign is launching in Minnesota!  Starting September 28, 2012, over one million individuals in the state of Minnesota will receive a letter from the Governor focused on considering your long-term care needs, supplemented by an email campaign (to 500,000). This is a federal and state public awareness effort to encourage and enable individuals to plan for their long-term care needs by the United States Department of Health and Services and the participating state.

The state and federal government knows the importance of planning for long-term care, so now is the best time for you to planning your long-term care future! About 70% of Minnesotans aged 65 and older will need some form of long-term care assistance as they age. Paying for this can be very expensive and most people mistakenly believe that Medicare will cover these costs, in fact Medicare does not!
