“EDITORIAL: Financing long-term care sustainably”

EDITORIAL: Financing long-term care sustainably,” Taipei Times

“Regardless of whether tax-based or insurance-based financing is used, there is no way that the government can bear the responsibility of financing long-term care alone. Instead, the government should emphasize its management role and properly use the limited funds to serve the needs of those who require long-term care. Before attempting to reach a consensus on how to fund the long-term care program, the government should try its hardest to make appropriate use of profit-making institutions, non-profit social welfare groups, local communities and even family caregivers.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):

Interesting insights into the LTC challenge in Taiwan. Emphasis added.
