LONG-TERM CARE PARTNERSHIP CERTIFICATION INFORMATION
If you are a consumer looking for an agent who has completed the Long-Term Care Partnership Certification course, please click the link below and view the listing provided below of agents who have confirmed their certification status with the Texas Department of Insurance.
Listing of Agents who have confirmed their Long-Term Care Partnership Certification status: as of 02/01/2017.
Note: This list only contains agents who have completed the certification course and is updated quarterly. This list does not reflect whether or not they have completed the continuing education requirements to retain their certification. Therefore, verification of the agent’s current certification status should be done by the consumer, policyholder, agent or insurer.
An individual who obtains a current resident agent license may not perform any acts of an agent with regard to a long-term care partnership insurance policy unless the individual:
- Holds a current Life, Accident, and Health license issued by the department.
- Has completed an eight hour long-term care partnership certification course.
An individual who holds a current Life, Accident, and Health license issued by the department and is performing acts of an agent with regard to a long-term care insurance policy at the time of the effective date of this requirement may perform the acts of agent, provided that the individual completes a long-term care partnership certification course no later than January 01, 2009.
Licensees may count a long-term partnership certification course towards completion of their continuing education requirement.
Licensees that may qualify for the exemption provided under § 19.1004 (b) or (c) are not exempt from having to complete the eight hour certification course.
