Long-Term Care Insurance

Long-Term Care Insurance

NYPERL LogoThe New York State Public Employee and Retiree Long Term Care Insurance Plan (NYPERL) is made available by the New York State Department of Civil Service to New York State employees, retired employees and their eligible family members. This benefit program is enabled by Chapter 585 of the laws of 1998 authorizing a long term care insurance plan for New York State Employees and Retirees. Local governments may also elect to participate in NYPERL. Until May 2016, NYPERL was available through MedAmerica.

Currently, the New York State Partnership for Long Term Care (NYSPLTC) offers a combination of private long term care insurance and Medicaid Extended Coverage (MEC). More information is available at http://www.nyspltc.org/, or by calling 866-950-7526 or emailing nypltc@health.ny.gov.
