“Washington State Long-Term Care Insurance Program to Launch Saturday,” by Allison Bell, ThinkAdvisor
“Originally, WA Cares was supposed to begin collecting taxes in 2022. The program is supposed to start paying up to $36,500 in benefits to eligible participants starting July 1, 2026. WA Cares could serve as a model for a public LTC benefits program in California.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
More likely WA Cares will be a red flag warning for other states and the federal government of what not to do.
