With over 16 years experience designing Long Term Care policies and assisting my clients with over 170 claims, I can help you decide if long term care insurance is appropriate for you.
If it is, your needs and concerns will determine your plan design, and we will find all discounts and appropriate options for the best carrier and price.
I can help you in-person or over the internet with no obligation.
What do clients like most about working with you?
My clients tell me I am able to cut through the confusion about this product
by honing in on their needs and concerns. They also appreciate the help I
give when they need assistance with their claims. My goal is that they are
able to stay home or enjoy assisted living with the best care possible.
Several clients have recovered from broken bones and illnesses and have gone
off claim. Most people don't realize we can take months to recover our lives
As one client said," ...our LTC insurance company, including you, could not
have been nicer or more efficient. Your program made my wife's last days
infinitely more comfortable, and for that I am eternally grateful."
What else can you add to helping people with their Long Term Care needs?
I have access to a range of products to help people who may not be able to
be underwritten by one or another company. I also have access to a team of
high caliber professionals to help with financial matters, bookkeeping, bill
paying and legal and real estate issues.

"Words cannot describe home much I have appreciated Barbara Hanson's help over the past twenty years. She is a great resource for all aspects of long-term care planning... a walking encyclopedia. You will not feel you are being sold a product, but talking to a friend. She will provide accurate information you need and even direct you to other vendors when appropriate. Recently I was in a muddle and she homed like a laser, pointing me in directions I hadn't thought of and promising further research. All this when I cannot even use any product she sells! Everyone I know thinks she's fabulous." - Sue Reynoldson, 2011
"A few years ago my husband, Ray, could not be covered by Long Term Health
Insurance because of his age and poor health. We waited too long. He is now
in a nursing home and the payments per month are so high that it's hard to
believe. It's a shame that we weren't educated sooner about the availability of Long Term Health Insurance. Thanks to you, my own application was approved and I can feel more at ease knowing I will have Long Term Care coverage some day if needed, continue to make people aware of the importance of getting the coverage before it's too late. Keep up the good work." - A.P. Morgan Hill, CA
"I really want to thank you for all your love, support, and compassion concerning my Mother's ordeal.She's at peace now, but YOU made a difference in your own way in helping with her transition to Heaven. I truly believe that." -Chad C. Capitola, CA
"I don't know where I'd be right now without the Long Term Care Insurance, probably with one of my kids - they have no place for me. Barbara has been one of the most helpful people I've ever worked with - if ever anyone needs proof, call me." -Beth K. Seattle, WA
