Fermilab is offering an addition to its employee benefits: CNA Independent Solutions Group Long-Term Care (LTC) insurance. There will be an open enrollment period from March 1 through March 31. Information about the open enrollment has been sent to your home address. Plan to attend one of the informational meetings to learn more and have all of your questions answered. During this time, employees will have the opportunity to enroll in the program without being asked any medical questions (evidence of insurability). Your acceptance into the plan is guaranteed.
LTC insurance covers care provided at home or in a facility such as a nursing home for individuals who are unable to take care of themselves as the result of chronic illness, disability or mental impairment. Personal care, nursing and other related services are provided for persons of all ages. Services range from simple help with meals, to assistance with activities such as dressing or bathing, to 24-hour monitored care.
