Be prepared for your scheduled interviews and contact your doctor if you experience delays in releasing your medical records.

If you’re approved for coverage, you’ll receive a policy in the mail and will be billed for any premiums due. Keep your policy in a safe place and tell your immediate family members you bought a long term care policy and where to find your policy information.
