Voluntary Group Long Term Care

Most medical plans don't cover long-term care services such as nursing home care or at-home care to assist with bathing, eating or other activities of daily living. Anyone at any age may need these services, the cost of which can quickly deplete savings or retirement income. The Commonwealth of Virginia (COV) Voluntary Group Long Term Care Insurance Program can help with these costs.

VRS has contracted with Genworth Life Insurance Co. as the insurer for the program. Participant-paid coverage provides a monthly benefit allowance for covered long-term care expenses. Genworth will begin accepting new enrollees September 16 - October 25, and coverage will begin December 1.

*Note: Employees who enrolled in the long-term care insurance program before December 31, 2016, will continue their coverage under that program.
