These consumer protection requirements are set forth in section 1917(b)(5)(A) of the Social Security Act ( 42 USC 1396 p(b)(5)(A) ) and principally include certain specified provisions of the Long-Term Care Insurance Model Regulation and Long-Term Care Insurance Model Act promulgated by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (as adopted as of October 2000) (referred to herein as the "2000 Model Regulation" and "2000 Model Act", respectively).
