CNA Long-Term Care Insurance

CNA Long Term Care Insurance Review

People sought after CNA long-term care insurance policies because the policies offered many benefits, the pricing and underwriting were competitive, and the agent commissions were lucrative.

My experience is based on working for one of the CNA insurance distributors from 1998 to 2001.

CNA and other long-term care insurance companies underpriced their policies, creating tremendous problems for consumers who bought LTC products from CNA, John Hancock, Genworth, Transamerica LTC, and other companies.

Companies increased prices on existing policies and/or reduced consumer benefits.

As an FYI, the CEO of Genworth recently announced that CareScout is looking to enter the LTC market.

State programs like the California LTC Insurance Program were also affected by companies exiting the market.

By 2003, CNA exited the individual LTC market.

Final Thoughts

Gone are the old long-term care insurance products from CNA, John Hancock, and GE.

The traditional long-term care insurance policies were a great idea, but the pricing was inaccurate.

Today’s hybrid life insurance/long-term care policies offer guarantees that will serve you now and in the future.

Examples include MoneyGuard Fixed Advantage, CareMatters II, and Asset Care.
