Nearly 13 million Americans need long-term services and supports (LTSS), and the need is growing rapidly. Yet, we have no planned way to pay for these services. In order to ensure that people get the care they need without impoverishing themselves or breaking the government's bank, we need to find solutions.
On February 17, 2016, LeadingAge released the 2016 Pathways Report, Perspectives on the Challenges of Financing Long-Term Services and Supports. Download the PDF report to read more about our position on long-term care financing.
LeadingAge believes America needs a new financing system that is insurance-based and guided by the principles of rationality, equity, and affordability.
We are committed to facilitating further dialogue needed to move this issue forward.
