Additional agreements may be available. Agreements may be subject to additional costs and restrictions. Agreements may not be available in all states or may exist under a different name in various states and may not be available in combination with other agreements.
SecureCare III may not be available in all states. Product features, including limitations and exclusions, may vary by state. For costs and further details of coverage, including the terms and conditions under which the policy may be continued in force, contact your agent/representative.
SecureCare III may not cover all of the costs associated with long-term care or terminal illness that the insured incurs. This product is generally not subject to health insurance requirements. This product is not a state-approved Partnership for Long Term Care Program product, and is not a Medicare Supplement policy. Receipt of a long-term care or terminal illness benefit payment under this product may adversely affect eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits or entitlements.
SecureCare III includes the Acceleration for Long-Term Care Agreement and Extension of Long-Term Care Agreement. These two agreements are tax qualified long-term care agreements that cover care such as nursing care, home and community-based care, and informal care as defined in the agreement. These agreements provide for the payment of a monthly benefit for qualified long-term care services. These agreements are intended to provide federally tax qualified long-term care insurance benefits under Section 7702B of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended. However, due to uncertainty in the tax law, benefits paid under these agreements may be taxable.
To be eligible for benefits, the insured must be a chronically ill individual and have been prescribed qualified long-term care services pursuant to a plan of care prescribed by a licensed health care practitioner.
The death proceeds will be reduced by a long-term care or terminal illness benefit payment under this policy. Please consult a tax advisor regarding long-term care benefit payments, terminal illness benefit payments, or when taking a loan or withdrawal from a life insurance contract. Death proceeds will be reduced by outstanding loans and unpaid monthly deductions.
Exclusions and limitations
Eligibility for long-term care beneﬁts includes satisfying a 90-day elimination period. This is a period of time (90 days) during which no long-term care beneﬁts are payable following the date the insured is determined to be eligible for beneﬁts. You are not eligible to receive beneﬁts if your long-term care service needs are caused directly or indirectly by, result in whole or in part, from or during, or there is contribution from:
alcoholism or drug addiction; or
war or any act of war, while the insured is serving in the military, naval or air forces of any country at war, whether declared or undeclared; or
active service in the armed forces or units auxiliary thereto; or
the insured’s active participation in a riot, insurrection or terrorist activity; or
committing or attempting to commit a felony; or
any attempt at suicide, or intentionally self-inﬂicted injury, while sane or insane.
Pre-existing condition limitations
Pre-existing condition limitations refer to any condition or disease for which the insured received medical advice or treatment within six months preceding the effective date of the Acceleration for Long-Term Care Agreement for that same condition or disease or a related condition or disease. There does not need to be a specific diagnosis for the condition or disease for it to be considered a pre-existing condition. We will not pay benefits for a pre-existing condition or disease that is not disclosed in the application for a period of six months from the effective date of this agreement. A pre-existing condition during the first six months that this agreement is in force will not be counted toward the satisfaction of the long-term care elimination period.
