 BLUE CROSS AND BLUE SHIELD OF FLORIDA
 OFFERS LONG TERM CARE PROGRAM FOR FLORIDIANS
 TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida announced today that it is offering a new affordable, long term care insurance plan for Floridians. This comprehensive long term care plan will first be available to Floridians in the Western and Southern regions of the state.
 "As Florida's population continues to grow and health care costs continue to rise, we need to continue to address the special needs of Floridians for affordable, quality long term care insurance," said Walter Liptak, vice president at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. "This program is a first step for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida."
 Neither Medicare or Medicare supplement policies are designed to cover long term care. They are designed to pay for hospital and physician services, Liptak said.
 "We have included a number of features in the policy to keep down costs," said Liptak. "It will include benefits for all levels of nursing home care and adult day care as well as inflation protection and home health care options."
 The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida long term care policy meets both current National Association of Insurance Commissioners guidelines and the regulatory requirements of the state of Florida.
