“3 Insurance-Based Medicaid Planning Strategies”

“3 Insurance-Based Medicaid Planning Strategies,” by Allison Bell, ThinkAdvisor

“A longtime advocate of private long-term care insurance contends that many consumers use insurance-based strategies to game the Medicaid nursing home benefits eligibility system. Stephen Moses, president of the Seattle-based Center for Long-Term Care Reform, includes descriptions of insurance-based strategies consumers can use to meet Medicaid asset limits in a new report on ideas for fixing the U.S. long-term care finance system.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Allison Bell’s review of our new report “How to Fix Long-Term Care Financing” may leave readers somewhat unclear about its purpose. The report is policy analysis intended to show economists, health policy wonks, and legislators how Medicaid crowds out responsible long-term care planning, hurts the poor, wastes taxpayers’ money and what to do about.
