Today, 10 million Americans need long-term care. In the next three decades, the number of Americans needing long-term care is expected to double, leaving our nation’s long-term care financing system — based largely on Medicaid — in jeopardy. We must act now to ensure today’s seniors and disabled adults receive the best possible care and ensure long-term care is affordable for future generations.
While there is a growing consensus that long-term care financing reform should be part of health care reform, there remain underlying questions about next steps towards reform. The Center for the Study for Politics and Governance in partnership with Aging Services of Minnesota, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging and AARP Minnesota, are committed to bringing this important policy discussion to Minnesota. We have partnered to bring together the top experts on this topic for a frank discussion on the best possible solutions to this issue.
Co-sponsored with Aging Services of Minnesota, the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, and AAR Minnesota.
