All current California public employees, retirees, their spouses, parents, parents-in-law,
adult children and adult siblings between the ages of 18 and 79 are eligible to apply
for coverage. Eligible public employees include, but are not limited to, those employed
by the State of California and all State departments, state Assembly and Senate, judicial
systems, school districts, cities, counties, special districts, public universities
and community colleges. Applicants must meet underwriting requirements for acceptance
into the program. Public employees do not need to be a member of CalPERS and do not
need to be an applicant or policyholder of the CalPERS Long-Term Care Program in order
for their relatives to be eligible
The new Long Term Care product is designed to provide innovative, contemporary coverage
with the flexibility to meet a variety of participants' needs, including:
- Plan options that allow applicants to tailor coverage to suit their needs and budgets.
- Affordable options to help keep pace with the rising costs of receiving long-term
- Benefits that make it easier to receive home care or care outside the United States.
