Long-term care insurance will be the topic of a public forum scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, July 9, in the Walnut Conference Room at Great River Medical Center, 1221 S. Gear Ave., West Burlington. Led by representatives from the Iowa Insurance Division and the Senior Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP), the forum will educate older Iowans and their families while also gathering input to help improve enforcement and consumer protection, and plan for further legislation.
