Cathie Lewis joined LTC Consumer in 2010. Her goal is to educate people on how long term care insurance (LTCI) policies work, what they cover, and why long term care coverage is important to consider. She considers herself an educator first, a counselor second, and a broker facilitating the application third.
Cathie became an LTCI Specialist after experiencing a personal event with her mother. Cathie explains she “was drawn into the complexity and emotionality of having to make decisions for a parent needing long term care. My mother did not have insurance, and the decisions I needed to make were just that much more difficult.”
Cathie has a perspective on LTC and LTCI that only experience can provide. Because she was once the consumer on the other side of the table, she values “being honest; not a broker looking at my financial gain.”
She was attracted to the LTC Consumer model as it allowed her to “work with people from all corners of the US in a noninvasive format. The old model of home visits is one that most people really aren’t comfortable with, and this circumvents that process.” As Cathie puts it, “It is a win-win in my opinion that works well for all!”
