“‘We can no longer ignore this’: Affordable long-term care is urgent priority, panelists say,” by Kimberly Bonvissuto, McKnight’s Senior Living
“Nora Super, senior director of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging and executive director of the Milken Institute Alliance to Improve Dementia Care, said the group narrowed those solutions down to three big ideas:
- A large-scale Medicare Advantage demonstration project to test the effectiveness of technology and home-based interventions in reducing cost and improving care across the continuum.
- Scaling up and adapting integrated care models to provide flexible, low-cost, high-value services for targeted enrolled with complex needs.
- Identifying the most viable and beneficial options for complementary public and private insurance solutions to expand long-term care coverage for the middle market.”
Exactly how far do you think that kind of bureaucratic gobbledygook will get us on the path to fixing long-term care? The Milken Institute swings and misses as so many of its ideological ilk have in the past. We’ll take a closer look at its conventionally mediocre and misguided analysis in next Friday’s LTC Bullet.
