Long Term Care Insurance
The Group Long Term Care Insurance Plan is only available to employees who were enrolled in the Group Long Term Care Plan prior to June 30, 2013. This Plan is not open for new enrollees as of June 30, 2013. If you are enrolled in the Group Long Term Care Plan, then the Plan provides you and your covered dependents with long term care insurance benefits according to specific guidelines in the Summary Plan Description if a licensed health care practitioner has certified that you are qualified for benefits. You will be qualified for benefits if, in the preceding 12 months, you were unable to perform for a period of 90 days, at least two of the following activities of daily living without substantial supervision due to the same or a related condition (including a severe cognitive impairment): bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring. Long term care benefits will be paid pursuant to a plan of care provided by a licensed healthcare practitioner. You must have received long term care for 90 consecutive days (the “Elimination Period”) before long term care benefits are payable.
