“We worked with Scott over a period of a few weeks and now we have a long-term care policy that we feel good about. Scott was very helpful in finding the best company for us which provides the coverage we felt we needed at a reasonable price.”
I’m Irby from Georgia. Let me tell you about my experiences finding long-term care insurance and how Scott Olson helped me. I retired last year at age 63 and knew that my wife and I needed to get long-term care insurance for possible future needs.
We discussed this with our local insurance agent with whom we have a number of insurance policies, IRA’s and annuities. His is a very large and reputable company in the insurance industry. Our agent put together some options for us to consider, but they were all very costly. We knew that coverage at our age would not be cheap but we did not expect the coverage to be as expensive as he had quoted, even for the lower options.
So I decided to go online and see what cost alternatives I could find from another insurance provider. I found a site which offered quotes from several companies for the same basic coverage. I left our names and contact information on the site. And within 15 minutes Scott Olson sent me an e-mail indicating that he would call me shortly, and he did.
We worked with Scott over a period of a few weeks and now we have a long-term care policy that we feel good about. Scott was very helpful in finding the best company for us which provides the coverage we felt we needed at a reasonable price.
Matter of fact, Scott ultimately helped us get almost the same coverage we discussed with our local agent for half the price that we had been quoted locally.
Needless to say we are happy. Although Scott and I are on opposite sides of the country we found that Scott was a pleasure to work with, highly efficient and responsive and very dependable. He did what he said he would do.
And best of all, it appears that Scott was working as much for us as for the companies he represents.

“Scott gave me the information in a timely manner. It was much more thorough. His packet of information was helpful. I would recommend Scott. He is unbiased in his recommendations and his service was second-to-none.”
I’m an attorney in Ohio. I have an active Elder Law practice. And my wife and I, Sue, had been discussing getting long-term care insurance in our personal life. I contacted several agents on the internet initially, to ask them about various quotes. Scott gave me the information in a timely manner. It was much more thorough. His packet of information was helpful. I would recommend Scott. He is unbiased in his recommendations and his service was second-to-none.

“Scott made sure that my lab tests that were in my favor were forwarded to (the insurer). And he persevered with us in terms of selecting an insurance policy that benefited us both financially and medically (underwriting-wise). I have to say that previously I had been turned down the minute the representative heard my diagnosis. But Scott persevered. We are indebted to him.”
My name is Barbara and I live in Maryland and in the winter I live in Florida. I had been trying to get long-term care insurance for quite a few years, at least four, until I was recommended to Scott Olson.
I have to say that previously I had been turned down the minute the representative heard my diagnosis. But Scott persevered. He made sure that my lab tests that were in my favor were forwarded to (the insurer). And he persevered with us in terms of selecting an insurance policy that benefited us both financially and medically (underwriting-wise). We are indebted to him.
I’ve recommended Scott to other clients. One client in particular questioned her (long-term care ) insurance coverage and he analyzed it and advised her that she really had full coverage and didn’t need any (additional coverage). He is a very honest dedicated person and we think the world of him and will continue to recommend him whenever possible in the future.

“He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He didn’t push.”
My name is John. I live in Virginia with my wife. I got long-term care insurance from Scott. We got it on a recommendation from a friend of ours who had a very good experience with him. I was very pleased that Scott was mostly interested in what we were interested in. He didn’t push one vendor or the another. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. He didn’t push. We sat on this for six months. We didn’t make it a priority. We came back and did it. We changed it around and he was very helpful. He was always there for us but never kinda “in your face”.

“As a long-term care specialist Scott Olson’s knowledge, efficiency, and professionalism stood out among the many agencies in the insurance field. that made sense for our particular circumstances, that suited our needs as well as our budget.”
This is Chuck from Michigan. As we began the process of finding a provider of long-term care insurance we spoke with local agents and also explored internet resources. As a long-term care specialist Scott Olson’s knowledge, efficiency, and professionalism stood out among the many agencies in the insurance field. Scott gave us advice and options that made sense for our particular circumstances, that suited our needs as well as our budget.
He guided us through the entire process and kept us advised at each step. We’re very satisfied with the end result and would recommend Scott to others interested in long-term care insurance.

“Scott knows the business. He knew more about insurance plans and insurance plans in Indiana than an Indiana broker I was checking out.”
My name is Ron. I live in Indiana. And my wife and I purchased long-term care insurance with Scott. Working with Scott was a great experience. He’s responsive and thorough. Any question I had was quickly and completely answered in 24 hours or less. This was a much different experience than working with other agents. Also, Scott knows the business. He knew more about insurance plans and insurance plans in Indiana than an Indiana broker I was checking out. I highly recommend Scott for his professionalism, knowledge, service and integrity; a great person with whom to do business.

“He even advised us that we did not need some options we thought we did. In other words, the premium was actually less from the advice he gave us.”
This is Verla and Jim from North Carolina. Jim and I were recently married and needed to update our estate planning. Since neither one of us had long-term care insurance, that was something we felt we needed. Did I mention that I’m in my early 60’s and Jim is in his 70’s. We first tried several local companies (agents) and we were very disappointed; by one, very high premiums and the other was lack of timely responses to our questions, and by timely I mean 2 or 3 weeks.
By web search, I found Scott Olson. Immediately I felt a rapport with him. He answered our questions very promptly; led us in the right direction, since he represents several companies; and even advised us that we did not need some options we thought we did. In other words, the premium was actually less from the advice he gave us.
He stayed on top of the application process and continued to give us the benefit of his experience. Since he is very knowledgeable he is able to explain the intricacies of the long-term care insurance to lay people, like us. Jim and I feel very fortunate that we found Scott and we thank him for making things so clear to us. We feel a great comfort in getting this taken care of and know that Scott made much of it possible.
You cannot lose if you go with Scott!

Thanks for your thoroughness throughout the process! I really appreciate your willingness to answer my questions, your knowledge, and the timely manner in which both you and Carolyn communicated with me at every step.
“We had numerous questions about different things as we read through the information and Scott always answered them thoroughly and to our understanding.”
I’d just like to share with you my experience we had with Scott Olson when my husband and I were shopping for long-term care insurance. Beginning with our first phone call to Scott his attitude was very business-like but he was never a high pressure salesman like some of the other agents we had contacted. He was truly interested in our needs and not just in making a sale.
For example he researched plans for several different long-term care companies and then recommended the best one to fit our needs. We had numerous questions about different things as we read through the information and Scott always answered them thoroughly and to our understanding.
We had a very pleasant experience working with Scott and would recommend him to anyone looking for long-term care insurance.

“The most valuable thing about Scott is that he is an independent agent. He works for the client: for you and for me and not for the insurance company.”
My name is Susan and I live in Texas. And I just bought long-term care insurance, my husband and I did, through Scott. We were not beginners. We had investigated it some before. What I want to indicate is the most valuable thing about Scott is that he is an independent agent. He doesn’t represent a particular company or even 2 or 3 companies.
He’s not tied by the limitations or the possibilities of a company. He works for, as a result, for the client: for you and for me and not for the insurance company.
He’s extremely knowledgeable. He’s much more knowledgeable than anybody we’ve ever come across. And he’s indefatigable about following up and investigating and answering whatever you want to know. No question is too stupid. And he’s tireless about quoting new possibilities whether you want to change the benefits or the premiums or the length of time or the amount per day or whatever you want to know about, if he doesn’t know it he’ll find it and he will just try to quote whatever you want to know without being annoyed and without growing weary.
And because he deals with so many companies he can compare policies and understands all the ‘ins and outs’ both of buying them and of filing claims when the time comes. So his greatest advantage is being an independent agent, but he’s also very patient and he wants to get the right policy for each client whether that brings him a small or large commission or whether that takes him six months or a week to do it.
We can’t recommend him strongly enough. I’ve had him send his book to friends of ours and we’re really satisfied with what we did and we’re satisfied that we know what we needed to know to make the decision.
