The University of Oregon offers Long Term Care Insurance through UnumProvident as part of the PEBB Optional Benefit program.
Long term care insurance can help ease the financial burdens associated with care if you lose the ability to perform the basic activities of daily living such as walking, moving unassisted, dressing, bathing, eating, toileting. Long term care may be needed to recover from surgery or to cope with the effects of illness. In many cases, long term care is given in the home or in a private room of an assisted-living facility. Without long term care insurance, the cost of providing services like this could cause significant financial hardship for you and your family.
All benefit eligible employees and certain family members who are 18 to 84 years old are eligible to enroll in Long Term Care insurance at any time.
Important: As a newly hired employee you are eligible for benefit amounts on a guarantee issue basis of up to and including $4,000 and a facility benefit duration of 3 or 6 years. You must enroll within 30 days from your initial eligibility to receive the gaurantee issue benefit.
