New York State Public Employee and Retiree Long-Term Care Insurance (NYPERL) is
available for purchase by New York State employees and retirees. Eligible family
members (spouse, domestic partner, parents, parents-in-law and dependent
children) are also eligible to apply for coverage at the same group rates.
WHAT IS LONG-TERM CARE?
Long-term care is assistance you or your family members may need
to carry out basic activities of everyday living in your home or in an extended
care facility. The need could arise from an accident, debilitating illness,
or it could simply be the natural result of aging. You could need
long-term care at any time, at any age.
WHY ENROLL NOW?
- If enrolled within 60 days of eligible appointment,
employees are guaranteed issue. After 60 days, you may
be subject to medical underwriting (eligible family members must submit proof of medical eligibility).
- Once you are accepted for coverage, your coverage cannot be cancelled due
to a change in health status.
- Premiums are at a group rate and are based on your age. Therefore,
the younger you are, the lower your premium.
- You will receive a 10% premium reduction when both you and your
spouse/domestic partner are issued coverage.
