Reforming long-term care financing through insurance.

Until recently, insurance for long-term care was not viewed as feasible. This perception has changed dramatically in the past
few years. Several models of long-term care insurance have begun to be tested. Although the application of insurance principles
to long-term care is still new, the emergence of private market interest in developing long-term care insurance has been a
catalyst to renewed public-policy support for reforming the way we pay for long-term care. States, in particular, have become
interested in developing public-private partnerships to support the emergence of long-term care insurance that could help
relieve the mounting pressure on Medicaid budgets.
