Long-Term Care Program Is Unfinished but on Schedule Washington Post (01/16/02) Vol. 32, No. 1 p.B2; Barr, Stephen
According to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the government's long-term care insurance program will go ahead with its late March early enrollment period, as the agency and insurance provider LTC Partners near final decisions on some benefit issues. OPM official Frank Titus says that the program will feature competitive prices. Individuals participating in the program will be able to save some money due to new legislation recently signed by the president that exempts the program from "premium taxes," which several states and localities charge.
