The odds of needing nursing home care are high. Research shows that roughly one out of every two people over age 65 need care --- a figure much higher than other routinely insured risks such as homes or automobiles. Fortunately, there are nursing home benefits that can help cover the cost.

If you or a loved one need assistance qualifying for nursing home care benefits, contact the Walker Law Group, LLC at (318) 445-4516 to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our attorneys.

Was waiting on the latest European model run to come out, which didn't show much change, to post this graphic. Now keep in mind folks, this is a forecast on a pesky winter weather event that's still four days away, so expect changes. With the cold air and precipitation both racing down and timing being a major component to this system, it's impossible to know community-by-community who will see what, but this is my best thinking at this time. With all the talk of this system today, sometimes it helps to visually see what could happen based off of the latest data that I have.

The freezing line will most likely halt across north-central Louisiana Tuesday morning, but I do expect some sleet pellets and wet snowflakes where temperatures will be in the 33-36 degree range. Near and north of the freezing line, mostly snow is anticipated. There will be a middle zone where rain/sleet/snowflakes will all be possible, mainly across the central parts of the state and northern portions of Acadiana. As it stands now, areas south of I-10, where both surface temperatures and temperatures aloft will be warmer, an all-rain event is likely. Of course, if models come in colder or warmer this graphic will change, but this is how it stands now. Hoping for a few snow flakes across Acadiana!!! More details through the weekend.

Hi everyone!
I'm so excited to be working with Make-A-Wish to help grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. It’s truly amazing what a wish come true can do for the kids Make-A-Wish serves. In addition to giving them the experience of a lifetime, parents, health professionals and volunteers agree that a wish empowers wish kids to fight harder against their illnesses. And I happen to think that every wish brings a little more kindness and joy into the world.
little more kindness and joy into the world.

Thank you!

Long Term Care Insurance Company Goes Bankrupt

Today the Penn Treaty Network of America Insurance Company became one of probably many more Long Term Care Insurance companies to go bankrupt. Unfortunately, like with pensions, the math all works out beautifully when the insurance companies are able to follow their model 7.5% annual returns on assets, but, in the real world where global bond yields are hovering just above 0%, the math is slightly less rosy. According to the National Association of State Insurance Commissioners, there are currently about $2 trillion worth of LTC claims that will need to be covered at some point in the future. That's trillion with a "T". The news gets worse. According to the National Association of State Insurance Commissioners, the largest holders of toxic derivatives are life insurance companies. This will affect life insurance, annuities and long term care insurance.

With regard to the bankrupt company issuing long term care insurance, Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioners Teresa Miller said:

"Over the past several years, long term care insurance has posed significant challenges to insurers on a national level. The pricing of these policies for many insurance companies has proved to be insufficient as a result of claims greatly exceeding expectations and low investment returns. Claims have exceeded expectations due to incorrect assumptions concerning the number of policyholders who would drop their coverage and the number of policyholders who would utilize their policy benefits, as well as the cost of providing those benefits. The pricing deficiencies and resulting financial losses have resulted in many long term care insurers seeking large premium rate increases and some leaving the market.
In the case of Penn Treaty and American Network, the Pennsylvania Insurance Department determined that the magnitude of additional premium rate increases needed to remedy the companies' financial difficulties (exceeding 300% on average) would severely harm policyholders and would not be permitted by state regulators, leaving no alternative other than to place the companies into liquidation."
