Who Needs Long-Term Care & Who Pays for It?

For today's update, I would like to share this informative video on long term care. It is part of a series produced by the Alliance for Health Reform, a nonprofit, nonpartisan health policy education group in Washington, DC.

About 70 percent of Americans over age 65 will eventually need some form of long-term care. This can mean nursing home care. But more commonly, it means help at home with activities such as dressing, cooking and eating.

Many people think Medicare covers long-term services and supports. With limited exceptions, it does not, as this video points out.

Featuring Bruce Chernof, MD, president and CEO of The SCAN Foundation, dedicated to helping seniors receive integrated medical treatment and human services in the setting most appropriate to their needs.
