Maryland, often referred to “America in Miniature” because of its diverse topography, is a small state on the Atlantic Coast, sharing a border with our nation’s capital. Although there is a wide range of biodiversity and climate across Maryland, most of the state’s residents live in the urban areas surrounding Washington D.C. and Baltimore. A number of major league sports teams play in Maryland and the state is the hometown of many famous athletes, including Babe Ruth and Michael Phelps. Most of these athletes, though, will need long term care at some point and it’s time for Marylanders to start preparing for their future health needs.

The Maryland Long Term Care Insurance Partnership Program is run by the state insurance department and helps state residents invest in insurance that will provide them with quality care at an affordable rate.
