Tennessee Long Term Care Partnership Program
The Long Term Care Partnership (LTCP) Program is a joint effort between the federal Medicaid Program and Long Term Care (LTC)
insurers. The Long Term Care Partnership was developed to encourage people to plan for their future LTC needs, such as residing in a
nursing facility or assisted living facility, or receiving LTC services in a home or community-based setting.
TennCare is Tennessee’s name for the federal Medicaid program. In order to participate in TennCare’s LTCP program, a person must
have purchased and received the benefits of a qualified Partnership policy.
A person who requests TennCare payment of LTC services after exhausting some or all benefits of a qualified LTCP policy may have
certain assets “disregarded” equal to the benefits paid by the qualified LTCP policy at the time the person is determined eligible for
TennCare. These assets are not counted when the person’s TennCare eligibility is determined and will not be recovered during estate
recovery when the person dies. This means that with the Partnership’s dollar-for-dollar asset protection, Tennesseans can protect
personal assets if there is a need to apply for TennCare.
