Virginia Long-Term Care: Programs, Policies, and Partnerships

This course offers a comprehensive look at long-term care and long-term care insurance. It was designed to meet Virginia’s 8-hour initial training requirement for licensed agents who sell long-term care insurance for the state’s partnership program. The course covers the nature of long-term care, available long-term care services and providers, long-term care insurance products, government-sponsored health care options (including Medicaid), partnership programs, alternative LTC funding options, and the ethical and suitability issues associated with long-term care products and policies. The course concludes with two chapters on Virginia’s specific requirements for long-term care policies and the responsibilities of insurers and agents who represent and place these unique products.
