Group Long Term Care Plan

The Group Long Term Care Plan is available to eligible employees, their spouses, parents, grandparents, parents-in-law, and grandparents-in-law. A valid Social Security number is required to apply for coverage. You or your family members pay the full cost on an after-tax basis. Premiums for employees and their spouses are processed through an after-tax payroll deduction. Parents, grandparents, and in-laws will be billed directly by Genworth, the plan administrator.

The Group Long Term Care Plan provides a variety of services, often referred to as “custodial care,” for people who are unable to care for themselves. Medicare and private health insurance plans or disability coverage typically do not provide coverage for long term care needs. Group long term care coverage is designed specifically to cover the costs associated with extended long term care.
