If a producer completed a Long-Term Care continuing education (CE) course in Michigan prior to the amended law, does the course satisfy the amended law training requirements?

Public Act 198 changed the topic requirements and added a specific number of hours for each type of training course (one-time and ongoing).

To meet both the long-term care training and CE requirements, education providers will have an opportunity to have their existing courses re-reviewed if they believe their course content meets the new training requirements. Current long-term care courses meeting the new requirements will be reclassified with the LTC - Partnership designation and will satisfy the amended law training requirements, allowing individuals to dually meet their training and CE obligations.

Current long-term care courses not meeting the new requirements will remain classified as Long-Term Care. This means the course does not meet the new requirements and a producer is not compliant with the training requirements of Public Act 198.
