Missouri Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Program

 

Since April 2008 Missouri has offered Long-Term Care Insurance Partnership Policy's, this is a private-public venture between the state and LTC insurance companies. It is a way to encourage residents of Missouri to plan for their long-term care needs. Missouri Partnership program works in the same manner as most all other partnership programs, in that the program provides a dollar-for-dollar asset protection. Each dollar your long-term care insurance partnership policy pays out in benefits entitles you to keep a dollar of your assets if you ever need to apply for Medicaid.
