Long Term Care Insurance Partnership (LTCIP)

The Wisconsin Long Term Care Insurance Partnership Program is a joint effort between the federal Medicaid Program, long-term care insurers, and the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin’s Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Program is a partnership between:

  • Private long-term care insurers

  • Long-term care insurance producers (agents and brokers)

  • Wisconsin Department of Health Services

  • Office of the Commissioner of Insurance

At the federal level, the Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Program is overseen by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The purpose of the Wisconsin Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Program is to encourage people to make plans for how they will meet their future long-term care needs, whether through services provided in their own home or another community-based setting or in a nursing facility.

Under the Wisconsin Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Program, an amount equal to the amount of benefits that a person receives under a qualifying Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership insurance policy is excluded when determining:

  • The person’s resources for purposes of determining Wisconsin Medicaid eligibility and
  • The amount to be recovered from the person’s estate if the person receives Wisconsin Medicaid benefits.
