No. The purchase of a long term care policy is due to concern over future health care services needed due to a mental or medical condition and the financial cost of that care. A long term care policy gives you the control over those decisions and will help offset the costs involved. In the event, you would have to rely on the government's Medicaid program to make those healthcare decisions and to cover the costs; a Partnership policy with asset protection would provide financial protection for your assets.
