Financing long-term care. Health and Public Policy Committee. American College of Physicians.
Ann Intern Med 1988; 108(2):279-88AIM

Abstract

The availability and delivery of long-term care services in the United States have been hindered by major organizational and financial problems. The American College of Physicians has previously identified and addressed some of the organizational problems that impede access to long-term care. In this issues paper, we provide background information on and analysis of the costs and the methods currently used to finance such care in the United States. The Canadian National Health Care System is also described for comparison. We then analyze such alternative financing mechanisms as private individual insurance (beyond Medigap), employment-based long-term care insurance, self-insurance, vouchers, financing through Medicare, home equity conversions, and prepaid capitated case management plans. The advantages and disadvantages of each of these methods are presented.
