The Long-Term Care Partnership Program (Partnership), administered by the Department of Community Health in collaboration with the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance and the Department of Human Resources, Division of Aging Services, provides an alternative to spending down or transferring assets by forming a partnership between Medicaid and private long-term care insurers.
This public-private partnership creates an innovative program offering individuals quality, affordable long-term care insurance and a way to receive needed care without depleting all their assets.
The Office of Commissioner of Insurance approves the Long Term Care Insurance Policies for insurers who wish to offer these specially qualified products. The Office of Commissioner of Insurance also tests and licenses insurance agents who must be specially qualified to sell Long Term Care Partnership qualified products in Georgia.
