One of Cameron Stanton’s clients bought a “cancer policy.” These so-called “dread disease policies” often sound better than they really are. Cameron’s client received very little coverage for her expensive cancer treatment. After reviewing the policy terms and consulting with the client’s physician, Cameron determined that the limited coverage was justified by the policy terms.
Cameron also examined another kind of insurance policy: long-term care insurance (LTCI). In our class on LTCI, he explained the options available to employees and their relatives under Wake Forest University’s optional policy. This kind of insurance can be complicated and expensive. For consumer resources, see the Elder Law Clinic’s website, which has a page about LTCI.
