Federal long-term health care insurance open season under way through June 24

An open season for the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) is under way and will continue through June 24. It is the first FLTCIP Open Season since 2002.

During the FLTCIP Open Season, actively at work federal and U.S. Postal Service employees and their spouses/same-sex domestic partners, and active members of the uniformed services and their spouses are eligible to apply with abbreviated underwriting (which means answering fewer health questions).

This is not a general open season for current FLTCIP enrollees. Current FLTCIP enrollees can make changes to their coverage at any time.

Non-enrolled annuitants and other qualified relatives can apply for coverage at any time, but must complete a full underwriting application.

The FLTCIP provides long term care insurance for approximately 225,000 enrollees, making it the largest group long-term care insurance program in the country, as well as the largest employer-sponsored long-term care insurance program in the country.

The FLTCIP was created by an act of Congress called the Long-Term Care Security Act of 2000 (P.L. 106-265). The FLTCIP is administered by Long Term Care Partners, LLC, and is sponsored and overseen by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
