Long-Term Care (LTC) insurance is an optional after-tax benefit that helps pay many of the day-to-day expenses for nursing home and in-home care not generally covered by medical or disability plans. This provides a benefit if you are unable to care for yourself due to disability, illness, accident or age.
Starting October 1, 2015, CNA Insurance Company discontinued LTC coverage and is no longer Stanford’s LTC insurance provider. Stanford's Long-Term Care provider is changing to Genworth.
- If you are currently enrolled through CNA Insurance Company you may continue coverage or purchase a new policy with Genworth
- For new LTC enrollees, Genworth will manage LTC insurance
Stanford offers LTC insurance at group rates through Genworth and you may apply for coverage at any time.

New Employee Enrollment
As a new employee you have 31 days from your hire date to enroll. When you enroll as a new hire you may choose any coverage level without completing the Evidence of Insurability (proof of good health) process. Your coverage will be effective on the first of the month after the date you enroll.
You may also purchase coverage for your spouse or registered domestic partner as well as your parents, parents-in-law, grandparents and grandparents-in-law. All eligible dependents must always provide Evidence of Insurability.
