Daschle, Thompson and Rivlin to Release Initial Recommendations to Improve Long-Term Care Financing

Washington, D.C. – In the next two decades, an aging population, fewer family caregivers, increasingly limited personal financial resources, and growing strains on federal, state, and family budgets will create an unsustainable demand for long-term care for older Americans and people with disabilities. On Monday, February 1, BPC will release a series of initial recommendations on ways to address this complex challenge by weaving together the approaches of publicly funded programs with private insurance products. A panel discussion with experts in the field will follow.
