Engaging 2008 Debate, Key Long Term Care Advocacy Groups Offer New Plan to Strengthen Nation's Long Term and Post-Acute Care Delivery System
Date:1/15/2008

nsibility -- will allow consumers to better plan for their long term care needs, which will afford them better and broader choices. In addition, the plan will allow both federal and state lawmakers to seize control of eldercare financing issues. The plan also offers clear solutions to the nation's Governors by dramatically restructuring the Medicaid program, which currently finances the lion's share of long term care in America. Medicaid, established in 1965, remains a literal lifeline for the nation's less fortunate elderly, and must be reformed in a way that ensures consistent care and services, as well as their financing, and that relieves the pressures on state government to devote ever greater resources to pay for care. The alternative -- the inevitable collapse of the system under the growing weight of its outdated financing structure -- simply is unacceptable. This plan will reorganize the Medicaid long term care and Medicare post-acute care systems by centralizing and streamlining government services and making more private resources available to pay for care, which will benefit the consumer, provider and taxpayer alike.

Highlights of the proposal, available in more detail at http://www.ahca.org and http://www.aqnhc.org, are as follows:

A Streamlined Long Term Care System Enhancing Consumer Choice

The proposal will infuse private resources into the entire spectrum of long term care services, ensure a viable care system for the future that covers care provided at home and in a full array of care settings, optimize choice in the type and site of care received, and federalize the system to minimize state-by-state and regional differences in the long term care benefit available to all Americans. The plan will also establish new financial products -- including improved reverse mortgages, federally-endorsed long term care (LTC) insurance produc
