Cathie Lewis

Consumer Specialist

Cathie Lewis

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!”

Cathie is so knowledgeable about the industry and we highly recommend her as an LTCI agent.”

“I enjoyed working with Cathie in my search for long-term care insurance.  She was a very professional, customer focused representative with deep knowledge of long-term care products.  This is a complex product with many considerations and she was very helpful in providing me with great information and guidance on the features offered by each carrier. She was also of terrific in helping me put together the application and ensuring that it was complete and clear for the underwriters.

Cathie always looked out for my interest and needs and was always there to answer my questions. I always felt she was working to help me solve a problem and find an answer.  I particularly appreciated the extra effort that she put into developing a number of insurance options and helping me understand the financial consequences of each of them.  What was particularly great was that she had a tool that let her construct various scenarios on the fly that provided me with cost and payout information using different assumptions.

I would highly recommend using Cathie.  She represents the major carriers and can provide unbiased information on costs and feature across major carriers.”

Cathie, I want to thank you for your awesome help through all of this!  And I know your not done, but I feel a huge relief to be this far into the process.  You are soooooooo good at what you do.  I am very appreciative that you kept in contact with me to help me get the appointment to happen.  I am going to tell everyone I know to call you for LTC insurance.  If you want to send me a few cards I would love to give them out.  You are the only person who called me back!!!  I am loving working with you!”

Cathie Lewis was very professional & efficient.”
