Long-Term Care: Challenges and Solutions for States

Among the many concerns currently facing America’s health care system, few are more significant, both medically and fiscally, than long-term care, or LTC. With the continuing rise in the population of U.S. citizens 65 and older—statistically, the demographic most in need of LTC—states need to begin preparing for the growing pressures that will be placed on their budgets as a result of the nation’s aging population. Presently, LTC costs are unaffordable for large segments of the population, forcing many LTC recipients to instead rely on other sources for support, primarily Medicaid and unpaid caregiving from friends and family. This webinar will address the problems LTC poses for states, highlight state and federal legislative efforts to stem rising LTC costs, and include a presentation about LTC challenges and potential solutions in Virginia.
