MA Eligibility and the LTC Partnership Program (2)

Overview

As the number of Americans aged 65 and older continues to grow, so does the demand for long-term care services. Over the past few years, the meaning of long-term care has broadened to include a wide range of services, with nursing home care at one end of the spectrum and regular assistance with essential daily tasks at the other end.

Minnesota’s life and health insurance producers must be able to advise consumers with products and options that address the potential need for long-term care. This course provides a thorough review of long-term care, long-term care insurance, long-term care suitability issues, and Minnesota’s Long-Term Care Partnership Program. 

This course is specifically designed to meet the ongoing study requirement for licensed producers who have completed an initial long-term care training program and has been approved for this purpose.
