Improving the Availability of Long-Term Care


A wide range of Americans rely on long-term services and supports (LTSS) for help with daily living. Nearly half of those with current LTSS needs are under age 65, while half of all Americans aged 65 today will need LTSS at some point in their life. In recent years, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s health team has worked to improve the availability of LTSS for low-income Americans, and to provide more affordable options for those who do not qualify for Medicaid.

Please join BPC on Tuesday, September 14 for a virtual discussion of current proposals to expand the availability of Medicaid home and community-based services, and the release of our new report on making LTSS more affordable for those who do not qualify for Medicaid.
