The training must include, but not need be limited to, long-term care state and federal regulation, available long-term care services and providers, alternatives to the purchase of private long-term care insurance, effects of inflation, insurance suitability standards and guidelines.
A nonresident intermediary who has satisfied the training requirement in another state will be deemed to satisfy the training requirement in Wisconsin, except for the initial 2 hours of Wisconsin-specific Medicaid and long-term care information training. In addition, nonresident intermediaries must complete one credit hour of Wisconsin-specific Medicaid training every 24 months concurrent with each individual’s license renewal period.
Each insurer is responsible for ensuring that intermediaries marketing their long-term care products have completed the required training and to track and maintain records regarding this training. Intermediaries should contact the insurers with which they are appointed to sell long-term care for additional information on training and the manner in which they must document and report to insurers.
