Rule 20:06:21:51 Assisted living centers -- Minimum benefit standards.
20:06:21:51. Assisted living centers -- Minimum benefit
standards. An insurer offering long-term care coverage to any person in
this state must include benefits for assisted living centers. If coverage for
assisted living centers is provided, the coverage must provide benefits for at
least one year in daily amounts not less than half of the daily benefit for
nursing facilities. If the daily benefit for assisted living centers is less
than that for nursing facilities, the insurer may only deduct the pro-rata
difference from the lifetime maximum.
