Northwestern Mutual Health Insurance Says

Northwestern Mutual health insurance offers coverage options for long-term care and disability insurance. Long-term care insurance is intended to help individuals plan for the future and provides benefits in the event of a long-term illness or injury. It covers care for an extended period of time at home, in an assisted living facility or at a nursing home, depending on the amount of coverage purchased. Disability insurance provides a source of income to the policyholder if their ability to earn an income is inhibited by a disabling injury or illness.
