The Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) is a voluntary program available to federal civilians, uniformed service members, and certain qualified family members. Created by an act of Congress, the Long Term Care Security Act of 2000, to serve an unmet health care need, the FLTCIP has helped the federal family take control of their long term care needs. This employer-sponsored program currently provides coverage for more than 267,000 enrollees.
The FLTCIP is sponsored by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), insured by John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company, and administered by Long Term Care Partners, LLC (LTCP).
The chief human resources agency for the federal government responsible for the oversight of its benefits and insurance programs, OPM is the sponsor and regulator of the FLTCIP, acting as a voice for the federal family.
One of the largest U.S. life insurers, John Hancock offers a broad range of financial products and has a proven track record of financial strength and stability.
A wholly owned subsidiary of John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company, Long Term Care Partners, LLC (LTCP) has administered the FLTCIP since its inception.
