Q. Will this cover hospice or long term care?

A:

Some. The coverage will include limited long term care benefits:

  1. Hospice and end of life care.
  2. Long term care benefits and eligibility at least as generous as Medicaid coverage as it exists now.
  3. "Subject to ongoing and consistent funding..." our plan proposes including long term care benefits beyond this after January 1, 2022.

Also, our proposal doesn't interfere with any benefits related L&I, Veterans benefits, or Indian Health Services or their funding. We do expect these federal programs to experience reduced spending for all essential health benefits provided to residents covered by the plan.
