WAC 182-513-1435

Effective January 1, 2013

WAC 182-513-1435 Will Washington recognize a LTC partnership policy purchased in another state?

The Washington long term care partnership program provides reciprocity with respect to qualifying long-term care insurance policies covered under other state long-term care insurance partnerships.  This allows you to purchase a partnership policy in one state and move to Washington without losing your asset protection.  If your LTC policy is in pay status at the time you move to Washington and you are otherwise eligible for LTC medicaid, Washington will recognize the amount of protection you accumulated in the other state.
