    Thanks, y'all... I do live in Texas... like BluegrassRN, I never gave thought to the geographic factor, so thanks for bringing that to my attention, elkpark. Seems so obvious, now that you mention it, haha. They didn't ask me my specialty either, so I know that can't be it. I'll give them a call and/or find another insurer, cuz the cost is just ridiculous... thanks again!

    As an LPN in Geriactrics, should I have insurance too? I can understand it for RN's or even where LPN's work in hospitals, but LTC??

    My advice is always the same, if you have something to lose you need insurance. Don't count on your employer to stand by you when push comes to shove. As far as being in LTC goes, a local LTC facility just settled a massive suit filed by several residents, so you are not immune in any specialty.
