Partnership for Long-Term Care Insurance About OPLTCI

A federal law established the Long-Term Care Partnership, which is administered at the national level by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The law gave Ohio and other states the ability to adopt their own long-term care insurance partnerships. The first four long-term care partnership states were New York, California, Connecticut and Indiana, where partnerships have been in place for about 20 years.

Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 5111.18 authorized the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) to develop the partnership in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Insurance (ODI), the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) and the insurance industry.
