SHIP 2004 Supplemental Long Term Care Grants: The purpose of the supplemental grant is to develop an enhanced capacity to provide information and assistance on the various financing options for long-term care services. In addition, the supplemental grant will also enable several SHIPs to support state-led pilot awareness campaigns in their States. These awareness campaigns will pilot test possible implementation strategies for creating awareness on the need for long-term care financial planning. By definition, a SHIP counselor assesses a client?s need for information and/or assistance on a wide spectrum of topics, including Medicare, Medicaid, Medicare supplemental insurance and long-term care insurance. The LTC Initiative is intended to increase awareness of the need to plan for long-term care, including the various long-term care financing options available for long-term care services. Consequently, the Initiative will require an enhanced capacity to provide extensive information and assistance on these options, including long-term care insurance and other private financing options. While CMS does not expect every SHIP counselor to have the same in-depth knowledge on this topic, the SHIP should have the capacity to provide this service to clients by instructing a certain set of staff and select volunteers to be able to apply assessment skills in helping clients who seek more in-depth information and assistance with long-term care questions and problems.
