LTC Bullet: Center Launches New Web Site

Wednesday August 26, 1998


The Center for Long-Term Care Financing in Seattle, WA is now a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week resource on the internet at

Center Research Associate Amanda Cooke has created a comprehensive web site featuring the Center's LTC Bullets, resources for media covering LTC-related issues, and a catalog of studies and reports which explain systematically how to achieve universal access to top-quality long-term care across the spectrum of care settings.

The Center's latest report, "LTC Choice: A Simple, Cost-Free Solution to the Long-Term Care Financing Puzzle," will be published and available on September 1, 1998. According to Center President Stephen Moses, "Implementing 'LTC Choice' recommendations will result in the vast majority of Americans protecting themselves when they are young enough, healthy enough, and affluent enough to take personal responsibility for their long-term care."

The following is an excerpt from the "LTC Choice" report:

"Today, the political imperatives to reduce government spending and curb entitlements have opened a pathway to major reform. We no longer need to effect incremental change to
an obsolete welfare program that is morally, intellectually, and financially bankrupt. By virtue of its excessive cost and its reputation for serious access and quality problems, Medicaid is finished as a long-term care financing system for the middle class. America stands poised on the brink of a revolutionary new approach to long-term care financing."

Members of the media can request a review copy of "LTC Choice" at no charge. Others can purchase "LTC Choice" for $24.95 incl. shipping. Contact the Center via its web site, by sending an e-mail to, or by calling Amanda Cooke at 206-447-1340.

The Center welcomes your comments and suggestions for improving its web site. See you there!
