Mutual of Omaha- Rate Increases on Pre-2013 Business

 

From the Desk of

Michael Sladek

 

 

From time to time, we must make prudent business decisions necessary for the long-term financial health of Mutual of Omaha. After careful review of our inforce long-term care business, cost of services, claims data and the economic environment, we have made the difficult decision to file and implement rate increases on all long-term care policies issued prior to 2013 with the exclusion of LTC09 in the state of California. 

Mutual of Omaha remains committed to the long-term care insurance marketplace and this reprice does not affect our commitment to you or our policyholders. Mutual of Omaha's Long-Term Care product remains competitive with features and benefits to fit your client's needs. 

What you need to know:

At this time, we have received approval and will be implementing rate increases for North Dakota effective January 1, 2022. We are working closely with the State Insurance Departments regarding the filings and approvals and will promptly communicate to you as we implement additional states.
