Lincoln Financial Group partners with insurance technology leader to launch Concierge Care Coordination site
RADNOR, Pa., March 16, 2022 – Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) today announced the launch of a new Lincoln Concierge Care Coordination service aimed at addressing the concerns of the 93% of survey respondents who agree that planning for care ahead of time would make transitions to long-term care less stressful1. The platform was developed in conjunction with The Helper Bees, an insurtech company delivering solutions that allow older adults to successfully age in place.
The new Lincoln Concierge Care Coordination site will provide up‐to‐date, relevant content and tools to policyholders with long-term care benefits, helping them plan for and support healthy aging, including assistance in finding in-home care providers. Policyholders will also be able to self‐initiate access to The Helper Bees Care Concierge specialists who work with the policyholder, and their family, to develop personalized action plans that empower the policyholder to remain safe and retain their independence leading up to and during a long-term care event.
“One of the best ways we can support our customers is by helping to guide them, and their families, in how to plan for the impacts of a long-term care event,” said Heather Deichler, senior vice president, MoneyGuard Business Management. “We believe the launch of Lincoln Concierge Care Coordination, in conjunction with Lincoln’s industry-leading long-term care products, will greatly assist policyholders and their families in navigating the process of planning for and finding care, as well as understanding what resources are available to them. By offering these services to our customers before they need long-term care we hope it will help them age in place and lead stronger, healthier lives.”
Policyholders and their loved ones can use Lincoln Concierge Care Coordination to simplify the process of arranging long-term care services. In addition, The Helper Bees Care Care Concierge specialists can help an insured coordinate home safety assessments, meal delivery services, local support groups, medication management or transportation services.
“We are grateful to be working with Lincoln Financial as they continue to lead the charge in meeting customers’ needs,” said Char Hu, CEO and founder of The Helper Bees. “The goal of our partnership is to launch an industry-leading pre- and on-claims wellness program. The Helper Bees’ program both improves the personalization of the Concierge Care Coordination service and gives Lincoln’s long-term care policyholders direct access to the care, services and resources that truly empower and support independent aging for as long as possible. We do this through a unique combination of people and technology, rooted in data and driven by actionable insights.”
Access to the site will be granted to policyholders with long-term care benefits at policy issue and will be accessed solely through the LincolnFinancial.com policy details login. This gives policyholders simplified, secure access through a single sign-on approach.
