WAC 182-513-1455 If I have protected assets under a LTC partnership policy, what happens after my death?

Emergency WAC effective 1-1-2014

Assets designated as protected prior to death are not subject to estate recovery for medical or LTC services paid on your behalf as described in chapter 182-527 WAC as long as the following requirements as met:

  1. A personal representative who asserts an assets is protected under this section has the initial burden of providing proof as described in chapter 182-527 WAC.
  2. A personal representative must provide verification from the LTC insurance company of the dollar amount paid out by the LTC partnership policy.
  3. If the LTC partnership policy paid out more than was previously designated, the personal representative has the right to assert that additional assets should be protected based on the increased protections.  The personal representative must use the DSHS LTCP asset designation form and send it to the office of financial recovery.
  4. The amount of protection available to you at death through the estate recovery process is decreased by the FMV of any protected assets that were transferred prior to death
