Share this article:
There are now nearly 10,000 employer groups offering a form of employer-sponsored long-term care insurance, with just over two million Americans insured by these plans," according to research conducted by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance and published in the organization's 2008 Sourcebook. "Sales of group long-term care insurance policies increased in 2007 compared to the prior year," explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the national industry organization. "Much of the growth came from new entrants into existing plans and buy-ups by existing policy holders," he said.
