"Long-Term Care Partnerships: An Update," Alliance for Health Reform: The issue brief presents information from a November 2006 briefing to examine the Long-Term Care Partnership Program, which allows people to retain assets equal to the amount of their long-term care insurance policy and apply for Medicaid after their private benefits are used. The brief also discusses other initiatives and future challenges to encourage U.S. residents to purchase private long-term care insurance (Alliance for Health Reform, "Long-Term Care Partnerships: An Update," March 2007).

A webcast of the Alliance briefing is available online at kaisernetwork.
