Faculty, professional staff, retired members of the College community, and eligible family members may qualify for discounted rates on individual long-term care insurance policies. Interested individuals may contact CaringPlans Associates, at (717) 652-0552 for detailed information about coverage and premiums. Newly hired, full-time members of the faculty and professional staff may apply for long-term care insurance through MedAmerica within 60 calendar days of hire in order to qualify for "simplified underwriting" (i.e., if applying within 60 days of hire, a full-time faculty or staff member will generally have to answer only a few health-related questions in conjunction with his/her application). A full-time employee's spouse or care partner, if actively employed at least 30 hours per week, may also qualify for simplified underwriting. Those who apply outside this 60 day window will be required to provide more extensive health-related information to MedAmerica in conjunction with their application for coverage. MedAmerica determines whether an individual qualifies for coverage. All information provided in conjunction with an application is kept strictly confidential by MedAmerica, and is not viewed, shared with, or stored by the College.
