Partnership

Partnership

Purchasing a Long Term Care Insurance (LTCI) policy now gives more protection than ever before.  This is a ‘partnership’ between you and the state.

Simply said;

If you purchase a Long Term Care Insurance policy with the correct inflation option;  And your state participates in the National Partnership Program for Long Term Care;  Then every dollar of benefit paid to you can be set aside from a Medicaid spend down. 

 

You can now protect your assets from a Medicaid spend down by insuring yourself with Long Term Care Insurance policy.  This is a very short and simple explanation, please contact us for details.
