The Role of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management

Involvement from the Beginning

The Long Term Care Security Act (P.L. 106-265) authorized the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to serve as both sponsor and regulator for the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP).

OPM awarded the contract for the FLTCIP's first seven-year contract term to a consortium formed by John Hancock and MetLife. In May 2009, OPM awarded the contract for the FLTCIP's second seven-year term to John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company. And in April 2016, OPM awarded the third seven-year contract term, beginning May 1, 2016, to John Hancock Life & Health Insurance Company.

Ongoing OPM Oversight

OPM regulates the FLTCIP and plays an important role in ensuring that the FLTCIP remains up-to-date and competitive, which is a valuable benefit not found outside the FLTCIP.

In this role, OPM serves as a voice for enrollees and potential enrollees, making sure Long Term Care Partners adheres to the highest customer service levels.
