One of the original 13 colonies, Pennsylvania is now the 6th most populous state in the United States with more than 12.7 million residents. In addition to a booming population, the state also enjoys a growing economy, pulling in the 6th largest gross state product (GSP) in the country. The state economy relies heavily upon banking and agriculture. Pennsylvanians, like many other Northeasterners, have  some of the most expensive long term care in the nation and need to be properly prepared for long term care when the time comes.

Pennsylvania began its own Long Term Care Insurance Partnership Program in 2007 to help avoid the massive burden of long term care costs on the state and help Pennsylvanians financially prepare for potential long term care situations.
