Back on the radio to market the word about Long Term Health Care

At one time I was one of the most listened to radio personalities in southern Illinois. If you listened to top 40 radio in the late 70’s and 80’s and lived in southern Illinois you probably listened to CIL-FM. Then known as “Rocknradio”, the station dominated the ratings.

You see, I was one of those CIL-FM “DJ’s” that played the hits and when I was on the radio at night most everyone was listening.

It was a great time. People like Al Lentine, Skip Thomas, Lori Jo Thompson, Todd Manley, Joe Crain, Greg Gorham and others ruled the night-time. At night the audience was younger and we were rock stars no matter where we went.

If you are around 50 to 60 you may remember the radio blasting such hits as Bette Davis Eyes and Physical from 181, Centerfold and Jack & Diane from 1982, Africa and Flashdance in 1983, Jump and When Doves Cry from 1984, Can’t Fight This Feeling and One More Night in 1985 and so forth.

I went on to other cities in radio, Champaign, Des Moines, San Antonio and Chicago. But starting on Monday, August 18th, I returned to southern Illinois radio on commercials for my “McCann Insurance Services”.

The radio commercials airing on WJPF (1340 AM) and WCIL (1020 AM) will promote my new national website, The website allows consumers to get quotes on Long Term Care Insurance without having numerous insurance agents calling them.

I have experience as a nationally recognized Long Term Health Care Specialist for over 15 years. I went into the business after my mother, at age 59, went into a nursing home after a health event. What I soon discovered is health insurance does not cover Long Term Health Care. Then I quickly found out that neither does Medicare. This means the physical, emotional and financial burdens that Long Term Health Care creates is placed on individual families unless they plan in advance.

Long Term Care Insurance is one way to plan so a person and family can protect their assets and be sure to never be a burden on their loved ones. The new website helps people learn how affordable planning really can be.

Some internet sites give a consumer’s request to four, five, six or more insurance agents. This means if more information is required to provide the quote, the consumer has all these people calling them. In addition, many of these ‘insurance agents’ are not specialists in this area.

Only one person will contact the consumer if additional information is required to obtain the quote. My firm, McCann Insurance Services, represents all the top insurance companies that offer Long Term Health Care Solutions.

Long Term Care Insurance has become a popular way for people to protect their 401k’s and future retirement savings and assets. This type of insurance is very affordable if designed and shopped appropriately by a specialist.

Many people are unaware that health insurance and Medicare (health insurance for those 65 and older) don’t pay for most Long Term Care services. This places the burden of caregiving to the family or the family’s back pocket. Developing a plan for Long Term Care is essential to everyone’s retirement planning.

The website,, will ask for only a few pieces of information so free quotes on affordable Long Term Care Insurance can be obtained by the consumer.

Understanding the government can only provide for those who have no assets makes this even more important to have a plan in place long before retirement.

What many people find is affordable Long Term Care Insurance is the answer for those who want to address the physical, emotional and financial burdens that a Long Term Care event can create on a family.

The American Association for Long Term Care Insurance ( says that consumers should work with an experienced and knowledgeable professional who has at least 100 clients although 500 or more is better according to the trade group. In my case I have thousands of clients that have been assisted over the years.

Premiums are based on the age and health of the person at the time of application. Most people who start looking into Long Term Health Care planning are ages 40-70, although even younger consumers are starting to look at this as a smart way to plan.

So if you are listening to news/talk radio in the next few months in southern Illinois you will hear a familiar voice. Yes, that is the same Matt McCann who played your favorite songs on the radio when you were younger.

Now that we are adults we have adult responsibilities. Planning for Long Term Health care is one of those responsibilities. Instead of calling me to make a request for the old familiar “top 5 countdown” I hope you will call and make a request for help in planning.
