The Office of Personnel Management has no contingency plan for its Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) if the market continues to spin out of control. The long-term care market has and is changing rapidly, and OPM needs to better prepare for those changes, the agency's inspector general said in a recent report.

Long-term care insurance premiums rose as much as 126 percent the last time OPM re-competed its contract for the program back in 2016. The premium hikes affected roughly 264,000 active and retired federal employees, who are paying an average of $111 more per month for the same they had in previous years. With the current pace of change in the long-term care insurance market, FLTCIP participants could see even higher premiums in the future, the IG said.

Since 2002, John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company has offered long term care insurance coverage to eligible members of the Federal family. In the past 10 years, they have raised rates for the following Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) inforce benefit booklet series:

An overall average increase of 83% was implemented. The increase varied based on an enrollee's age at the time of enrollment, plan originally purchased, and plan design.

  • A 126% maximum increase was implemented for enrollees who originally purchased FLTCIP 1.0.
  • A 66% maximum increase was implemented for enrollees who originally purchased FLTCIP 2.0.

Coverage under the FLTCIP is guaranteed renewable, this means FLTCIP coverage cannot be canceled based on a change in an enrollee's health or age.  As long as premiums are paid and benefits have not been exhausted, coverage will continue. However, it is important to note that premiums are not guaranteed and may increase in the future if you are among a group of enrollees whose premium is determined to be inadequate.

At SFG Federal, our solutions have the potential to give you lower costs with guaranteed premiums, life time benefits for both spouses, 100% return of premium, and a significant death benefit.

So, if you don't use it for long term care, you don't lose it.

Our mission is simple - we want to make the process of planning for Long-Term Care easy for you.
