There are differences between the policy language and benefits between companies that offer Long-Term Care Insurance although the major benefit options are similar. However key differences do exist. It is important to know and understand the differences between Genworth and the other major companies.
Genworth’s roots go back to the 1970s when the Firemen’s Fund issued the first nursing home policy. It later would become American Express, GE Capital and then Genworth. Genworth acquired the business of numerous other companies over the years. This gives them a substantial amount of experience. However, many of the old “legacy” products have had premium increases. These older policies were marketed and priced prior to rate stabilization rules and the interest rate crash.
Genworth Financial is one of the few major companies which will provide benefits for informal caregivers (could be friends, neighbors, family members). The Genworth claims department is the world class of the industry with more experience than any other insurance company in long-term care.
Features available with Genworth Financial Long-Term Care include:
Genworth Financial Inc. is now much closer to becoming part of China Oceanwide Holdings Group Co. Ltd. awaiting final regulatory approval.
Genworth does offer long-term care partnership policies. Learn more about the federal/state partnership program here: https://mccannltc.net/resources/faq/state-partnership-program
