Long Term Care Partnership
51 Madison Ave, New York, NY, 10010-1655
Distance: 47 Miles
This program, run by the Minnesota Department of Commerce, certifies federally tax-qualified long-term care insurance policies from insurance companies that meet Partnership rules.
People who use the benefits from a Partnership-certified policy are able to protect some assets if at some point in the future they need to apply for Medical Assistance (Medicaid). This can help them qualify for Medical Assistance sooner. The state will disregard their assets equal to amounts paid out under the certified Partnership policy.
In most cases, the policy must have been issued after July 1, 2006 to qualify as a Partnership policy.
