Slome was speaking to leading insurance professionals sharing some of the latest data from the just released statistics shared by the Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care
. "To the best of my knowledge, Connecticut is the only state still sharing data which is a real shame," Slome pointed out.
The Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care
and the Indiana Long-Term Care Program are alliances between state government and private insurers that combine private long-term-care insurance with the public Medicaid program.
Based on analysis conducted by the Connecticut Partnership for long-term Care
, the best time to begin planning for long-term care is before one's 60th birthday.
As of December 31, 1995, approximately 12,698 policies were in force: 2,067 in California (California Partnership for Long-Term Care 1996); 1,744 in Connecticut (Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care
1996); 1,197 in Indiana (Indiana Long-Term Care Program 1996); and 7,690 in New York (New York State Partnership for Long-Term Care 1996).
A third influence in altering the decision rules was the Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care
(CPLTC), a public-private financing program in its development phase during the time the PAS/CBS decision rules were being revised.
