Tennessee, better known as the Volunteer State by natives, is situated in the Southeast and is world famous for its country music scene that has produced artists like Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley. The state is also home to one of the world’s largest aquariums, the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, which holds more than 12,000 animals. Tennessee’s main industry is agriculture and like most of the Southern states, boasts lower medical costs than the rest of the nation. Long term care preparation is still a crucial part of financial planning, however, and residents of the Volunteer state are beginning to take note.

The state began their Long Term Care Insurance Partnership Program in 2008 to help Tennesseans safeguard their assets from depletion due to long term care.
