accept any part of the long term care insurance coverage authorized by
this article.

3. The president may designate one or more of such corporations as
insurers from which employees may select to provide long term care
insurance.

4. Each employee who is covered under any such long term care
insurance contract or contracts shall receive a certificate setting
forth the benefits to which the employee and his or her dependents are
entitled thereunder, to whom such benefits shall be payable, to whom

contract principally affecting the employee and his or her dependents.

5. The president may, at the end of any fiscal year, discontinue any

impair any employees' continuation of coverage or conversion rights with
respect to long term care insurance as defined in the regulations of the
