NU Online News Service, Dec. 3, 1:34 p.m. – Tennessee has picked MedAmerica Insurance Company, Rochester, N.Y., to develop, insure and run an optional, member-paid long-term care insurance plan for the state’s 70,000 public employees and retirees.

MedAmerica, which won the contract through a competitive bidding process, already runs similar programs for public employees and retirees in New York, North Carolina, Indiana, Kansas and Hawaii.

The Tennessee plan covers long-term care services provided by nursing and assisted living facilities, home health care agencies, adult day care centers and hospice programs.

MedAmerica will offer the plan at the employer group rate to family members of employees and retirees as well as the employees and retirees themselves. Eligible family members include spouses, dependent children age 18 and older, parents, and parents-in-law.

MedAmerica expects to begin enrolling members in the Tennessee plan in April 2003.
