You’ve come a long way in life. Protect the rest of the journey.

​Of all your long-term plans, this may be the most important.

As a physician, you know how a long-term health crisis can plunge an independent person into a period of physical dependency on others. But the costs associated with long-term care can be even more devastating – from nursing to medical equipment to income loss and more.

Fortunately, you may now apply for coverage to protect you and your family should you become unable to care for yourself due to aging, accident, illness, or deteriorated mental abilities. So even if you suffer a debilitating event, your financial future will be safe in the long term. ​


Personal care. Health care. Financial care.
