Long-term care insurance
Important Notice: New enrollments in the long term care insurance program are not being accepted at this time. The program will reopen to new enrollees in Fall, 2019.
Open enrollment for eligible employees is scheduled to take place from September 16 – October 11, 2019.
Long-term care insurance provides a wide range of supportive medical, personal and social services for individuals who need assistance for an extended period of time. The plan’s coverage can help protect against the risk of losing savings and assets to meet these needs.
Genworth Life Insurance Company is the plan provider for this benefit and is administering the program on behalf of the Virginia Retirement System (VRS). Following processing and approval of the completed application, participants receive a certificate indicating the effective date of coverage.
Participants in the program are responsible for all premium payments, which are direct-billed to the participating employee. Payments to Genworth can be made on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis and may be eligible for discount. Contact Genworth for more information.
Faculty, University and Academic Professionals, and classified staff who work at least 20 hours per week are eligible for the program provided they meet underwriting requirements. Employees under age 66 may apply for coverage with limited underwriting requirements during open enrollment September 16 – October 11, 2019. Select family members may also apply, including an eligible employee’s spouse, adult children, parents, parents-in-law, step parents, step parents-in-law, grandparents, grandparents-in-law, step grandparents and step grandparents-in-law who are between the ages of 18 and 75 at the time of application.
Enrollment details will be provided when the program reopens in Fall, 2019.
Employees who are already enrolled in the program continue their existing coverage, and may contact Genworth at (866) 859-6060.
