Can Private Insurance Solve the Long-Term Care Problems of the Baby Boom Generation

Testimony before the Senate Special Committee on Aging
March 9, 1998

The current American system of financing and delivering long-term care for the elderly and the younger disabled population is badly broken. At present, the United States does not have, either in the private or the public sectors, satisfactory mechanisms for helping people anticipate and pay for long-term care.
