WebCE® Releases Texas-Specific Long Term Care Partnership Training Course

WebCE, a nationwide provider of continuing education for insurance professionals, announced the release of a new state-approved training course titled Long-Term Care: Programs, Policies, and Partnerships. This course enables Texas producers to obtain their newly-mandated eight hours of study on the subject of long-term care and long-term care partnership programs. This training must be completed by January 1, 2009, in order for producers to continue selling LTC insurance in the state of Texas. After this date, a producer cannot sell or place a LTC policy without having completed this training.

In addition to qualifying as an approved long-term care training course, Long-Term Care: Programs, Policies and Partnerships has also received approval from the Texas Department of Insurance for eight hours of CE credit. The course is available online for $19.95. Quantity discounts are available.

Since the passage of the Deficit Reduction Act, Texas has now become one of a number of states to implement a long-term care partnership program. As part of the new program, Texas requires that all producers who sell, solicit, or negotiate long-term care insurance in Texas must have eight hours of training on this subject.

WebCE’s new 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 a chapter on Texas long-term care partnerships, Texas Medicaid, and how the two programs interact.
