Long-term care? APHA Xtras has you covered!

As an APHA member, you’re a treasured part of the Paint Horse family. And we’d like to be part of your life for a very long time. With that in mind, we’ve worked hard to put together a bundle of offers and services through APHA Xtras to make your APHA membership as invaluable to you as you are to us, including long-term care insurance. 

For busy Paint Horse owners, planning for life after retirement probably isn’t a high priority today when there’s feed to buy, stalls to clean, fences to mend and a horse or two to ride. But this decision is so important, we’re asking you to take five minutes right now to think about your future.

Will you need long-term care?

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 70% of people over age 65 will require some type of long-term care services during their lifetime, and more than 40% will need care in a nursing home.

Sure, you could depend on your own resources for your care. But with nursing home costs averaging $78,110 a year, and home health care averaging $48,048 per year, your life savings could quickly vanish.

Long-term care insurance can cover those costs and protect your hard-earned savings. But how do you choose an insurance provider when there are so many in the market? You could spend hours comparing different providers and plans—time we know you’d rather spend with your Paint Horse.

That’s why the APHA partnered with Long Term Care Resources (LTCR) , a national insurance agency, to offer members long-term care insurance at a substantial savings. Through LTCR, clients are able to compare multiple plans from the top insurance carriers. In addition, clients are able to obtain certain plans at discounted rates not available to the general public.

You are part of our Paint Horse family, and we care about your future. The longer you wait to apply, the higher the rates, so we’re asking you to take the first step today. Visit LTRC’s website  to learn more. Call their toll-free number, (800) 616-8759, to speak to a representative in your area and to request a free Long-Term Care Planning Kit. Check it off the list, and get back to what’s important—your family, your friends and your American Paint Horse.
