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!

  1. Not too often I can say that I agree with our government ( in this cae Minnesota's government of course). But thistime I do. It's just I am one of those who think that it is better to get long time insurance rather than have just the one for a short term. As for the coverage, it also has to cover everything. If you feel like you short on money, cant afford it or simply lack money this very moment, then what are yoo waitng for, look for online loans no credit check with ameriloan company. They can assit you!

  2. Good job for the people behind the awareness campaign in Minnesota. This kind of long term care insurance information is badly needed these days because life expectancy is becoming much longer and thus people are becoming more vulnerable to conditions and diseases that would require long term care. The only way they can prepare for this is with the help of the government, by providing them tips and guidelines on how to prepare for their future long term care needs and as well as by encouraging them to purchase long term care policy. I hope other states would follow and show more concern to their people.
