Long-Term Care (LTC) is the assistance you need when you can not perform the "Activities of Daily Living" (ADL) independently. It isn't the subject that most care to dwell upon. However, the failure to discuss or plan for the high costs of long-term care is causing American families to be unprepared to meet these high costs. First, the question is, who will pay for your LTC? Medicare and Medicaid's instability along with the diminishing US resources for LTC has prompted a government response to the impending LTC crisis.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) along with the Deficit Reduction Act (DRA) motivated Congress to set new standards for Long-Term Care Insurance (LTCi). Federal and State have joined together to promote LTCi by providing tax-incentives and offering State LTC Partnership plans.
