Long-Term Care: The Next Big Women's Issue?
Date:7/16/2009

The media's recent attention to long-term care centers around the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act of 2009, which would create a public insurance program for adults who become functionally disabled. "But the benefits would be less than half of those provided by a typical private policy, and they wouldn't kick in for five years," Gott says. "This could be better than nothing for lower-income people, but inadequate, in my opinion, for the middle class. Women would still be saddled with significant care giving chores."

A better solution would be "significant new tax incentives to help people buy private LTC insurance on their own, tailored to their needs," Gott attests. "Women should be screaming about this to their representatives in Congress. Their futures depend on it."

Also, the talk shows should be talking it up, Gott says. "I'm surprised Oprah, The View, and 60 Minutes aren't all over this."

Forced care giving has an economic as well as lifestyle downside. "Household income dwindles whenever a woman has to give up her job for unpaid care duties," says Gott. "Multiply that by the millions of women affected, and think of the drain on the economy. It extends into the billions." Tax breaks for long-term care insurance, "would be a great federal investment, helping us pay for other aspects of health reform."
