Tackling the Long-Term Care Crisis

The health care system in the United States is fragmented, lacking a comprehensive framework for delivering long-term care. This fragmentation leads to subpar health outcomes and elevated government health care spending. The critical impact of this issue becomes evident when examining populations with complex needs, particularly individuals managing multiple chronic conditions.

Tackling this crisis requires bipartisan efforts that promote high-value, patient-centered, and highly integrated care. BPC has a proven record of cross-party collaboration, focusing on improving care for individuals with complex medical and nonmedical needs, ultimately curbing unnecessary health care spending. Our previous work focused on ensuring a robust health care workforce for an aging population and enhancing access to high-value LTSS for individuals with chronic conditions or disabilities, which includes strengthening Medicaid home- and community-based services (HCBS). Through our work, we have also identified bipartisan opportunities to better integrate care for dually eligible individuals, promoting care coordination that improves health outcomes and reduces unnecessary, costly services.
