“In policy break, Medicare to pay for respite services under new dementia care model,” by Liza Berger, McKnight’s Home Care
“Aging services providers and experts are hailing a new dementia care payment model that, for the first time, allows Medicare fee-for-service to pay for respite services for unpaid family caregivers.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
Translation: don’t worry about planning for long-term care, much less paying insurance premiums. The government has you covered. This news might be more hopeful if Medicare were not already on the verge of insolvency.
