Changing Plan Coverage



If you are a current FLTCIP 1.0 enrollee and you are considering changing your coverage
, please read the FLTCIP Plan Comparison to see what FLTCIP 2.0 offers and how it compares to the original plan, FLTCIP 1.0.

Once enrolled in the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP), you can request changes to your coverage at any time. Depending upon whether you are increasing or decreasing your coverage, you may have to go through the underwriting process again.

If you are changing plan options and are not sure whether you are increasing or decreasing your coverage, please give us a call.

Keep in mind, you can only increase or decrease your coverage options to another option available under the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP).
