AHCA is a leader in promoting public policies to achieve more sustainable financing for long term care (LTC). We believe that LTC policies should promote and integrate a comprehensive array of public and private financing options that meet consumer and family needs and respond to their preferences.
The Long Term Care Partnership Program is a public-private partnership between states and private insurance companies, designed to reduce Medicaid expenditures by delaying or eliminating the need for some people to rely on Medicaid to pay for LTC services. AHCA fully supports this program and will work hard to promote its implementation across the states. AHCA developed this website on the Long Term Care Partnership Program as a comprehensive resource of information for state governments and consumers.
All states except the following have a Partnership program: Alaska, Hawaii, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Utah.
