Minnesota expenditures for long-term care (LTC) services through the Medical Assistance (MA)
program are unsustainable. In 2010, Minnesota spent approximately $1.281 billion annually on
LTC through MA.1 The influx of baby-boomers needing LTC in the near future will only add to
this growing budget. As part of a response to this problem, Minnesota is undertaking a public
awareness campaign called Own Your Future (OYF).
This report provides an update to the Minnesota Department of Human Services’ 2005 report to
the Legislature, “Financing Long-Term Care for Minnesota’s Baby Boomers.” It also offers a
springboard for discussion, analysis, and decision-making within the OYF leadership team as the
team seeks to address the problem of financing LTC.
