It May Never Be Easier to Apply to the FLTCIP
Responsible Claims Handling Is a Hallmark of the FLTCIP
It's Always a Good Time to Apply to the FLTCIP
Some employees, members of the uniformed services and their spouses who apply using the abbreviated underwriting application and are not approved to enroll in the insurance they originally applied for will be offered the Alternative Insurance Plan.
This innovative plan, developed by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and Long Term Care Partners, offers nursing home coverage with a weekly benefit, a two-year benefit period (104 weeks) and a 180 day waiting period.
This plan is available to:
Anyone who applies for insurance under the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) and is eligible for the Alternative Insurance Plan will automatically receive more information from us about this option.
If you apply for and are denied the standard insurance and are not offered the Alternative Insurance Plan, you will be offered a service package. This is true for everyone who applies - those using the abbreviated underwriting application and those using the full underwriting application.
The Alternative Insurance Plan is not available to those who must use the full underwriting application.
Important note: If you previously applied using the FLTCIP 2.0 Abbreviated Underwriting Application, you can reapply and still use the abbreviated application after the end of your 60 day eligibility period (within six months after the date you became eligible to apply) if your answer to question 1, 2, 3 and/or 5 in Part B has changed from "Yes" to "No" because your condition has resolved.
