Long-Term Care Partnership Program

A program that combines private LTC insurance with special access to Medicaid. This program encourages qualified individuals to purchase a limited, and therefore more affordable, amount of LTC insurance coverage, with the assurance that they could receive additional LTC services through the Medicaid program as needed after their insurance coverage is exhausted, without having to deplete their assets to the level typically required in order to be Medicaid eligible.
