Track Mission Statements

Below you will find information on the various tracks which will present educational breakout sessions at this

year’s conference.

Actuarial & Finance The Actuarial and Finance track will provide education on current and emerging issues, and provide ideas and techniques that enable actuaries and finance professionals to shape emerging practices in long-term care.  The track will cover thought provoking aspects from product development, data analytics, pricing, projections, valuation, investments, financial reporting, required capital, inforce block management, risk management, and strategy. Claims & Underwriting The track’s mission is to focus on mitigating risk from both an Underwriting and Claims perspective.  We will highlight how technology is changing the LTC platform to effectively manage identified risk, gain operational efficiencies and  improve the customer experience.  Sessions will provoke discussion around emerging trends inclusive of process and procedures across managing legacy Long-Term Care, Short-Term Care and Combination products.  Legal, Compliance & Regulatory Long-term care insurance is among the most highly regulated products in existence, and there is much discussion taking place about whether the current regulatory framework needs to change to support the products of the future.  Understanding the evolving regulatory landscape is a critical function for everyone in the industry.  Complex legal issues such as fraud and high stakes class action litigation are on the rise and continue to pose significant threat.  This track examines the legal, regulatory and compliance issues facing the industry and the practices necessary to mitigate risk. Marketing, Sales & Distribution The Marketing, Sales, and Distribution track will focus on how to foster long term sales growth across all individual and group long-term care funding solutions in light of current challenges and opportunities. Topics will include sales success stories, consumer insights, new strategies, untapped market segments, and emerging issues that will impact business development. Sessions will feature an interdisciplinary perspective, incorporating issues in underwriting, legal, and compliance, as well as technology. The goal of the track will be to cultivate thought-provoking dialogue between participants and speakers from which best practices and innovative new ideas can be crowdsourced. Management and Operations The mission of the Management and Operations track is to engage senior leaders in the Long Term Care Insurance business and impart knowledge in the areas of strategy, technology and management fundamentals.  Sessions are designed to appeal to a broad group of leadership including operations, legal, actuarial and finance.  Producer & Advisor This track of workshops is dedicated to the Long Term Care Insurance Producer/Financial Advisor.  Our objective is to offer practical insights to help GROW YOUR BUSINESS. The workshops are created for producers by producers and practitioners with the goal of presenting ideas and techniques that may be readily learned, integrated, and immediately provide a wide range of solutions in meeting the long term care needs of clients. Public Policy and Alternative Finance Solutions The Public Policy and Alternative Finance Solutions track focuses on new and innovative financial alternatives to traditional stand-alone long term care (LTC) insurance in order to better address the LTC risks and costs facing the American public. This track explores the latest trends and insights in politics, medical research, technology and caregiving with the goals of fostering new approaches to financing LTC and for reducing the costs of LTC services.  The track brings light to new research and ideas from outside the traditional LTC insurance environment including alliances between the public and private sectors in seeking solutions for the LTC risks facing society. Our goal is to identify and explore new ways to lessen the costs borne by federal and state governments by expanding the potential for private funding to help address the growing LTC funding crisis.  Critical emerging issues impacting LTC finance and delivery, including new research, technologies and health-related protocols of relevance to our industry, also fall within the purview of the Public Policy and Alternatives Solutions track.
