Think you’ll never need long term care? Studies show that more than 60% of people over 65 will need some type of long term care. Think your private health insurance or Medicare will cover it? Most long term care services aren't covered by your health insurance, and Medicare only pays for very specific, limited care. Medicaid requires you to spend down nearly all of your assets to qualify for assistance.
Beckham, a Long Term Care
Insurance Solutions Specialist
Long term care planning can mean the difference between making care decisions based on quality and personal preference or based on costs. Without proper planning, loved ones taking on the role of caregiver can be faced with financial, emotional and physical stresses that can greatly impact their daily lives.

is Long Term Care Insurance?
Traditional health insurance and disability insurance are not designed to pay for long term care services. Additionally, Social Security and Medicare do not pay for the costs of long term care. Private long term care insurance may be your best option to help cover the future cost of care. Below are some startling statistics about long term care in America.
Baby Boomer in South Texas
At the "young" age of 50, I purchased a LTC policy because I saw the benefit and had heard many elderly people and their families wish they had that option when deciding about non-medical care. At the time I purchased my LTC, the national average for caregiver services per hour was $25. I hadn't won a lottery nor had a wealthy relative leave money to me so....
My reasons were pretty simple. I wanted to be taken care of on my own terms as much as possible and as long as possible without breaking the bank. I did not want to burden my children and their families with any expenses for my care when needed. I am so glad I made that purchase then. As it worked out, less than 8 years later, I am no longer health eligible to purchase a policy. It is a small sacrifice to pay now, but I know it will be worth the peace of mind later.

Unfortunately I have seen too many people whose lives have been negatively affected by progressive illness, aging, or tragedy when LTC insurance has not been in place. I preferred to lighten the burden on my children and grandchildren by taking responsibility now. Kim is very knowledgeable and a great resource.
Dianne from Corpus Christi, Texas
Kim is a terrific agent who told me years ago... "You're not getting any younger, Dianne, and it won't get any cheaper!" After seeing my mother's assets depleted paying for her Alzheimer's care, I realized it was the smartest thing I've ever done!

Kim, thanks for your help in going through the steps, your care in explaining the policy choices and implications, and your advice on long term care needs. You made it easy to understand and negotiate. Thanks!
Kim is impressively knowledgeable about the field of Long Term Care (LTC) Insurance. She educated me and helped me to find the type of policy that would meet my needs. Having dealt with several other LTC agents, I can tell you how exceptional Kim is in both her expertise and in her willingness to go the many extra miles to provide the very best for her clients. If you are considering Long Term Care insurance you could not do better than to purchase your insurance through Kim Beckham. Her level of service is beyond compare.
M.S. from Kansas: “It is increasingly rare these days to encounter a person who goes well beyond what is required and makes every effort to help. Kim Beckham is one of those rare individuals. I contacted Kim for information about a new LTC policy offered by my employer. She explained the details well and sent follow up information, but she did much more. She took the time to ask about my current insurance, she reviewed the coverage, and she helped me view the new LTC policy in context with my current insurance. She made the difficult subject of insurance much easier to understand, and I am very grateful.”
P.L. from Texas: “Many years ago we met Kim Beckham.
At the time, we did not realize what a blessing this would turn
out to be. Kim was just a very nice saleslady selling Long Term
Care Insurance. We were in our middle years at the time, but
even then we could not imagine the need we would have as we grew
old. I am now 85 and my husband is 87. Due to unexpected care
needs about 5 years ago, we did need this protection. Due to
many options in purchasing insurance, Kim guided us in the
perfect direction. Over the years since we met Kim, she has
become a dear friend to our family. I know that even today I
could call her for advice, & Kim will never know how very
grateful we are for her honesty & caring attitude. She is a
great saleslady, but even better, a cherished friend.”
