Long-term care insurance.

Abstract

Existing law establishes the California Partnership for Long-Term Care Program, administered by the State Department of Health Care Services, to link private long-term care insurance policies and health care service plan contracts that cover long-term care with the In-Home Supportive Services Program and the Medi-Cal program. Existing law requires a long-term care insurance policy or a health care service plan contract to contain certain provisions certified by the department, including protection against loss of benefits due to inflation and a periodic record issued to the insured. Existing law requires an applicant to be offered one option that provides, at a minimum, protection against inflation that automatically increases benefit levels by 5% each year over the previous year, as specified, and at least one lower-cost option. This bill would require that lower-cost option to provide protection against inflation that automatically increases benefit levels by, at a minimum, either 3% each year over the previous year or a fixed amount each year equal to 5% of the original benefit levels, but would authorize a policy or certificate to be certified if it automatically increases benefit levels by 1% each year over the previous year if the policyholder or certificate holder meets specified criteria. The bill would require policyholders and certificate holders to be offered various options, if applicable, if a premium increases, including the option to reduce the daily benefit, as specified. The bill would also make conforming changes.
