The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is suspending applications for coverage in the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) beginning December 19, 2022, to thoroughly assess benefit offerings and establish sustainable premium rates.
Individuals not currently enrolled may not apply for coverage, and current enrollees may not apply to increase their coverage during the suspension period. The suspension will remain in effect for 24 months unless OPM issues a subsequent notice to end or extend the extension period.
Newly eligible employees and newly eligible spouses of employees may apply with abbreviated underwriting until the start of the suspension period. If approved, the individual will receive a benefit booklet and a schedule of benefits with complete coverage information.
The enrollment status or benefit eligibility of current enrollees does not change. Their coverage will continue if they are currently enrolled.
Contact the FLTCIP Carrier (Long Term Care Partners, LLC) at 1-800-582-3337, 1-800-843-3557 (TTY), or 1-571-730-5938 (International) for additional information.
