“Long-term care insurance may become mandatory,” China Daily

“As part of the national effort to defuse a demographic ‘time-bomb’, China is very likely to introduce compulsory long-term care insurance to cope with ever-increasing care needs, particularly for the elderly who have a difficult time living independently due to age, illness or disability, said a national political advisor.”
