Partnership LTC Insurance
Forty-four (44) states now have a Long-Term Care Partnership program in place. If you buy a Partnership-qualified LTC insurance policy and have a worst-case claim scenario where you use up all your benefits but still need care, you can receive guaranteed asset protection from your state's Medicaid spend-down requirements AND protect those assets from Medicaid estate recovery.
The amount of Medicaid Partnership asset protection equals the total amount of benefits paid by your Partnership LTC insurance policy. (In NY and IN Partnership LTC insurance may provide "unlimited" Medicaid asset protection.)
Only "traditional" LTC insurance policies can be Partnership-certified and not all insurance companies participate. (Newer "linked-benefit" or "hybrid" LTC insurance plans cannot offer Medicaid partnership asset protection.)
Make sure your agent is "Partnership Certified". Click here to learn more.
All Partnership states - except for California (CA) - are "reciprocal". If you purchase a qualified Partnership LTC insurance policy and move to any other Partnership state (except to or from CA), your policy's benefits AND the Medicaid Partnership asset protection follows you to the new state.
