BELLEVUE, WA., MAY 13, 2013—One of the nation's leading experts on long-term care insurance, Stephen D. Forman, CLTC, today announced the next chapter in his evolving educational campaign covering the field of long term services and supports (LTSS): a video Q&A.

Forman, senior vice-president of Long Term Care Associates, Inc., explained why he decided to donate his time to the project, "The internet is a blessing and a curse—information is freely available, but much of it is suspect. Now more than ever, it's critical that individuals only accept advice from a verifiable source they can trust."

He continued, "As the author of more than 50 articles about long-term care features, our profession and LTCi sales—as well as the founder of Twitter's ranking LTCi-facing account—it's my job to keep an ear to the ground. As certain questions began to recur, I felt it my duty as our industry spokesman to address them."

The interview has been edited into two brief 5-minute spots with the help of the Editorial Staff at ProducersWEB, where Mr. Forman is a regular expert contributor:

Q&A Part 1: Covers thoughts on the current state of the industry; the effect of carrier exits; impact of new products like Short-Term Care and Linked-Benefits; and a prediction for the next 20 yrs.


Q&A Part 2: Covers key factors influencing the buying decision; favorite sales strategy; how to include technology in the sales process; thoughts regarding "direct mail"; and more…
