Wyoming Long Term Care Partnership Program

 

The Wyoming Long Term Care Partnership Program is a public-private venture designed to encourage and reward Wyoming residents who take an active role in planning ahead for future LTC needs. The Wyoming Partnership Program will provide some level of asset protection. Every dollar that the Policy pays out in benefits, a dollar of personal assets will be protected when applying for long-term care coverage under EqualityCare (Wyoming's Medicaid program).

Under the federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, WY is an authorized Partnership program state. Wyoming Long-Term Care Partnership policies must be tax-qualified, contain certain consumer protection provisions and provide inflation protection.
