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

I saw this ad. It looked harmless. But I Googled the speaker and found she’s a Medicaid planner. How is it that marketing events like this are happening daily all across the country but you’ll never see any acknowledgement that Medicaid planning exists in the LTC financing literature? The answer is the LTC analysts’ “confirmation bias.” They recognize only evidence that supports their view that LTC is wiping out savings of vast swaths of the American public and therefore the only answer is Medicare Part X, WA Cares, or the WISH Act. The truth is long-term care financing is manageable privately if we remove perverse incentives in public policy that discourage responsible LTC planning. I’m working on a paper that explains exactly how.
