“NAHU To Propose National LTCi Program,” by Susan Rupe, InsuranceNewsNet.com

“NAHU is in the planning stage of presenting Congress with a proposal that would provide private-sector solutions that would enable more Americans to buy long-term care insurance, NAHU’s Vice President of Congressional Affairs John Greene told InsuranceNewsNet. These solutions would include: allowing LTCi to be offered as a group benefit that employees would pay for using pretax dollars, permitting employees who are enrolled in 401(k) and 403(b) accounts to use those funds to pay for LTCi, and tightening the eligibility requirements to have Medicaid pay for long-term care.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Kudos and congratulations to Center premium members Sally Leimbach and Honey Leveen and those they worked so hard with for so long to bring this proposal to fruition.
