This announcement is directed to insurance agents intending to sell long term care insurance products in Massachusetts, whether you hold a MA resident license, or are from another state. There is a new training requirement for any agent intending to sell long term care insurance in Massachusetts, whether it’s a traditional plan, hybrid plan, or life insurance with a long term care rider attached. As of July 1, 2014, every agent must have completed an 8 hour course, specific to Massachusetts. If an agent has taken a different state’s 8 hour NAIC Partnership training, Massachusetts will allow 6 of the 8 hours required. The remaining 2 hours are for a MA specific Medicaid section that must be completed. There are separate 2 hour training classes for agents who fall into that category. Other long term care courses, such as CLTC, or misc. CE courses on Long Term Care will not satisfy this requirement. There are several course providers offering the training classes online.
Please contact me if you have any specific questions. Mark Baron, CLTC Baron Long-Term Care Planning
