The topic of the panel is "The Long-Term Health Care Crisis:
How Can We Solve It?" According to The Heritage Foundation's
formal invitation to members of Congress, the media, and others:
"America's 77 million baby boomers will start to retire
in the next decade. America is still not ready for the massive
changes facing our society, and political leaders have shown an
unwillingness or inability to make the kinds of serious decisions
to make the transition a smooth one. While much of the focus
has been on Medicare and Social Security, an even tougher crisis
looms with the provision of long term health care. Right now
taxpayers are funding Medicaid to take care of elderly Americans
whose long-term care health care costs are from living in nursing
. Is there a better way?"
While he is in Washington, D.C. from December 6 to 10, Steve Moses is also available to conduct private seminars for groups and organizations interested in long-term care financing. He would like particularly to address members of Congress and staff, representatives of the media, public or private administrators, and long-term care insurance agents or brokers. A promising topic might be "How to Pay for Universal Long-Term Care." There will be no charge for these presentations during this week only (the usual honorarium is $3,500) if the organizer arranges the meeting, duplicates the handouts, and provides the conference room.
