Attorney-CPA Joe Cordell and co-host Susan Arthur are joined by Diane Finnestead, of Diane Finnestead Insurance, and Carrie Gormley. Diane started her career as a long-term care specialist and is now a National Trainer and District Specialist. Gormley has twelve years of experience in insurance and is a member of the Senior Resources Options.

The four discuss private sector solutions that people can use, in order to pay for their long-term care. They break down what the expenses can be, whether you are at home or at an assisted living facility. From an insurance perspective, Carrie talks about how chronic issues play a factor in what long-term care options are available.

They highlight the home health care policies that can be found for those in need of both short-term and long-term care. Diane also discusses how the underwriter can be an advocate for the patient, if a letter is written on their behalf. The group also touches on what happens when a patient may not qualify for long-term care.
