Long-Term Care Insurance
You are eligible to apply for coverage in the Commonwealth of Virginia (COV) Voluntary Long Term Care Insurance Program if you are over age 18 and a:
Deferred VRS member under age 75 who is vested (you have at least five years of service credit)
Retiree under age 75 receiving a VRS-administered benefit
Family members may also apply for coverage if they are between the ages of 18 and 75 and undergo full medical underwriting. Eligible family members include:
Parents, parents-in-law and stepparents
Grandparents, grandparents-in-law, step-grandparents and step-grandparents-in-law
Under this program, coverage to help pay for long-term care may be more affordable than you think. It also offers a variety of coverage levels available to meet your individual needs and budgets.
