Long-term care coverage is closed to new entrants effective March 1, 2012.
The voluntary long-term care insurance plan is underwritten by John Hancock Life Insurance Company.
Long-term care insurance helps protect against financial loss in the event that you require long-term care services due to chronic illness, injury, or the effects of aging. If you need assistance with personal daily activities, like bathing or dressing, this insurance can help defray the costs of care services received in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, assisted care facilities, and in your own home.
In addition to conventional nursing home coverage, the policy may cover services received in your own home and in other types of care facilities. The mix of care settings and levels of care varies with different policies.
One of the features of the plan is to provide the services of care coordinators, who are registered nurses, who can help you and your family find the care that is right for you and help you use your long-term care benefits wisely.
The inflation protection feature of the plan gives you the opportunity to increase your elected Daily Maximum Benefit and consequently increase your Lifetime Maximum Benefit. This allows your benefits to remain meaningful over time.
Even if you retire or leave your job at the University of Minnesota, you will be able to continue your coverage at group rates.
