The California Department of Health Care Services says Nations CareLink can serve as a care management provider agency for the California Partnership for Long Term Care.

The designation means that Nations CareLink, a unit of Long Term Care Group Inc., Eden Prairie, Minn., can provide care management services for policyholders of insurers that sell California LTC Partnership long term care insurance policies.

Long Term Care Group has been the administrator of the California Public Employees Retirement System self-funded LTC benefits program since the program was started in 1995.
