Kudos to Bonnie Burns from California Health Advocates on the August 23, 2021 post on “CalPERS [Long-term Care Insurance] Settlement & Premium Increase.” As a class member of the settlement, I have expended considerable effort to sort out a vast amount of confusing and conflicting information.
The article by Ms. Burns is unbiased, clear and factual. The terms of the settlement are concisely summarized, and I was especially impressed by the clarification on the premium increase. The writeup on “The Number of Years of Coverage”, “Premium Increase ~ Making Changes to Your CalPERS Coverage” and “Negotiation Tools And The Next Premium Increase” dovetails my own painstaking research on these topics. The article has helped me in making a confident decision on the settlement. Thank you!
