Long Term Care
Partnership Program

A public-private partnership between states and private insurance companies, designed to reduce Medicaid expenditures by delaying or eliminating the need for some people to rely on Medicaid to pay for LTC services.  AHCA fully supports this program and will work hard to promote its implementation across the states.  AHCA developed this website on the Long Term Care Partnership Program as a comprehensive resource of information for state governments and consumers.
