long term care insurance
May 27, 2008

My wife and are are in our 50's and were discussing whether to get long term care insurance. Then I found out I was HIV pos and never pursued it after that. I know she will be able to get a policy but is it even worth trying to look for a carrier for me?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

I think it could be difficult but people with other disabling illnesses have been able to get the coverage. So I think you should certainl try to get coverage.
