Here’s a link to an incredibly informative Reference Guide from the NC Insurance Commissioner’s office, comparing ALL the licensed CCRC’s in the entire state!
You probably don’t want to peruse all 99 pages. These are the pages we identified as most useful in the 2016 guide; we think they are numbered the same in this year’s version:
pdf pp. 4-8: explanation of terms
pdf p 9: map and names (with reference numbers) of all NC CCRC’s
pdf pp 68-71: summary of contract and refund options
pdf pp 71-74: summary of other services and features
To find an individual CCRC pdf page, add 9 to its map number.
We recommend that you check the map on p. 9; look at and compare the ones in Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and perhaps Burlington and Greensboro, as well as Pennybyrn (#27, pdf p. 36), which uses the Household model. In addition, the fee ranges on the individual pages can give you a sense of current local pricing.
When you click on the link it may automatically download the PDF to your computer, depending on your settings.
