I was very unfamiliar with the entire topic of long-term care insurance. Don presented the information in an easy-to-understand way, allowing me to make an informed decision tailored to my specific needs. Don is very knowledgeable and professional, and happily answered my multitude of questions. Don is not a high-pressure person– he realizes this is a decision that cannot and should not be made quickly. I would highly recommend Don to anyone who is considering purchasing long-term care insurance.
After speaking with several long term care insurance agencies, I found Don Strickler’s knowledge and willingness to explain the various components involved with long term care to be quite refreshing. After speaking with him a couple of times I felt that I gained a complete understanding of the policy features and what was best for me. Don listened to my questions and concerns and addressed them in a way that was simple to understand. I never felt the high pressure that I experienced with other agencies. If you want to see whether or not long term care insurance is right for you, I’d highly recommend that you speak with Don Strickler before making any decisions.
I want to thank you once again for your help with our decision on our long term care policy. By the time I called you we were already in a difficult situation in trying to decide between policies from two people who we personally know that were offering conflicting advice. Your help in clarifying the pros and cons of each rider and policy type helped us make a decision that we feel confident about. I am sorry that we did not end up purchasing a policy through you, but our prior relationship with the other person swayed us that way. I am impressed with your willingness to help us even though others were already involved and your change of a sale was reduced from the start. Your sincere willingness to offer advice is greatly appreciated. I will keep your contact information so I can pass it on to others who are searching.Sincerely, Sincerely,
After placing my mother in-law in an assisted living facility recently, my wife and I quickly learned how expensive this process was going be and it became obvious to us that we needed to do something to protect our assets from these possible future costs when we may need long term care. I was referred to Don by the American Association for Long Term Care and he initially gave me an array of quotes from various insurance companies so that I could get an idea for the costs that would be involved with these policies and he warned me that this was going to be a process that we would have to work through to get to a policy that would fit both our needs and our budget. After getting these initial quotes, I found that long term care insurance is like a buffet table and you would have to pick and choose the variables that you want, to make up your policy – elimination period, benefit period, benefit amount per month, inflation protection, shared care, etc…, each of which of course, had its own effect on the cost of the policy. Needless to say, my head was spinning and I did not have the information to make an educated decision, and this is a big decision because you will be paying for this for the rest of your life. So to gather information, I decided to talk to more than one agent, along with searching the internet. I decided I would talk to a representative from each of the Mutuals – Mass Mutual, Northwestern Mutual and Mutual of Omaha. In the end, Don earned my business because I found him to be the best resource – he has an in depth knowledge of the long term insurance industry (statistics behind the various variables, products offered by each of the different insurance companies, differences between the products, etc…) and he answered each my questions in a clear, straight forward manner that any layman could understand, and he never once pressured me in any way to make a sale. I appreciate Don’s efforts in getting my wife and I into a policy that I think we will be extremely happy with in the future.

Long-term care insurance coverage can be a difficult and complicated decision to make. I did my own research, but still wasn’t sure what policy or benefits were best for my wife and me. Don Strickler was a BIG help. He was patient with my questions and knowledgeable with the answers. I don’t know what will happen to my wife and me 20, 30 or more years from now. But Don Strickler helped us choose a long-term care insurance policy that we are very comfortable with. Thank you, Don.

I wanted to take a moment to thank your for the wonderful customer service you provided when we purchased our LTC insurance. Although it’s not something that anyone enjoys thinking about or shopping for, after visiting with you and reviewing the quotes you provided us, we were more than surprised about how reasonable the costs were for both my husband and me.We very much appreciate your time in explaining all the options that needed to be considered when choosing a LTC plan and for providing the three companies for our review for comparison purposes. It truthfully makes it easier to sleep at night knowing that we won’t be a burden on our family. We couldn’t believe the total annual premium both of us is about what a one-month stay for one of us would cost at a LTC facility. Please send more business cards at your convenience; we’ve handed them out to our friends, co-workers and neighbors, with a “You gotta call Don before you buy LTC insurance; he’s the best”. Once they get around to the acceptance portion of a responsible decision, I have no doubt you’ll be hearing from more folks in Colorado. Thanks again and all the best in 2015!

Don Strickler has been assisting us in designing and purchasing our long term care insurance plan. Before we met Don, we had spoken to several other long term care agents. Don is by far the most knowledgeable, honest, efficient, and courteous agent. He was a pleasure to deal with, and we would highly recommend him to anyone who plans to purchase a long term health care policy. Don has a vast knowledge of all of the different policies and options. Because there are so many variables to consider when purchasing long term care insurance, it was so important to have an agent like Don who was able to sort through the details. We asked many questions, and he always answered them thoroughly, providing examples to clarify the issues. He listened very carefully to our specific needs, so that he guided us in designing a policy that fit our individual situation. Don is very honest; while he was careful not to under-insure our needs, he also made certain not to sell us more insurance than we would need for our particular circumstances. Don’s efficiency is unsurpassed, as he always returned our phone calls and emailed documents in a very timely manner. Throughout our conversations, Don was always patient and polite. In summary, we would refer any of our friends and family to Don Strickler, as he truly simplifies this rather complex process, providing the best information in the most efficient manner with the greatest integrity.

Just a quick note to tell you how much we appreciate your assistance in helping us secure long-term care insurance. As you know we were unsuccessful in the past, due, I believe, to the lack of persistence on the part of another organization. You were a pleasure to work with, responsive, persistent and professional. Your friendly demeanor and expert knowledge base made it so much easier to make a decision about a complex issue. If we may ever act as a reference for you, I hope you will not hesitate to contact us.

Don provided superior client-centric service without any pressure. He provided information in a clear fashion and was always available to respond to questions from application to processing to finalization of the contract. In addition, Don went above and beyond to ensure us that anytime after the insurance is in effect to not hesitate to contact him for assistance. An offer that was sincere and that I am confident he will stand behind. In my experience, I have never had the responsiveness and quality of customer service in the insurance domain that we received from Don. I fully recommend Don without any reservations.
