Long Term Care and Washington State
The Washington State Long Term Care program is designed to provide financial assistance for individuals who require long-term care services. It is a voluntary insurance program that helps pay for care in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or at home.
May 2019--- First in the nation, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee has signed into law public state-operated long-term care insurance program. The act is designed to provide long-term care benefits to those needing assistance with their activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, or help with their medications.
As of today, the amount of benefits allocated for these long-term care services is $36,500. Although it is not required, if benefits were dispersed equally over the course of 1 years, this would equate to roughly $100 per day.
States such as California, Massachusetts, Oregon and others are also considering similar programs.
