Alameda County Long Term Care Insurance Program
Alameda County is currently offering a Long Term Care Program that can help reimburse the cost of covered services that help people perform everyday activities. Enrollment in this plan is open all year long.
Long term care services are often required when you need assistance with everyday activities, such as using the bathroom, taking a shower, dressing, or moving in and out of a bed or chair. The need for long term care can be caused by conditions such as a broken or fractured bones, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, or other chronic conditions.
Care can be provided in different settings, including your home, an assisted living facility, or a nursing home. Long Term Care Insurance is not a medical plan, nor is it an income replacement plan. It is a plan that helps you cover the cost of the daily activities of living.
All actively at work full-time employees working 37 hours per week or more. Your family members between the ages of 18-79 years of age (spouse/domestic partners, parents and in-laws, grandparents and in-laws, children and siblings) are also eligible. This is a voluntary benefit 100% employee paid on a after tax basis.
