Long term care has experienced a crisis in recent years, with availability becoming a major issue, and the establishment of insurance reserves in a volatile environment being especially challenging.  Merlinos & Associates has become industry leaders in this area, working with a number of risk transfer providers in this field over the last 20 years.  We provide actuarial and management consulting services to more than 15 captives and risk retention groups focused on long term care.
