LTC Bullet:

Heritage Reminder and Free Seminar Offer

Tuesday November 30, 1999


Center for LTC Financing President Stephen A. Moses will speak in the Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium at 214 Massachusetts Avenue, Northeast in Washington, DC on Dec. 7, 1999 at noon. Co-presenting is Richard Teske, former Deputy Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The event is open to the public, but please RSVP to Heritage at 202-675-1752 or by email to as soon as possible. You may also view this program live on Heritage's web site at

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 homes…. Is there a better way?"

We encourage all LTC Bullets subscribers and friends of the Center to attend this talk if possible and demonstrate your support for long-term care financing. Also, do please contact your Congressional representatives, inform them of the event and encourage them to attend. The Heritage Foundation and its educational programs are taken very seriously on Capitol Hill.

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. To reserve a time for your event, contact the Center for LTC Financing ASAP at or 206-447-1340.

The last such program Steve presented elicited this response: "Thank you for the seminar you did for [us] back in October. You did a terrific job! I very much appreciated the opportunity to hear you speak, and to have you share your knowledge… I have also included a contribution to the Center for Long-Term Care Financing [$500]. I am glad you and this organization are out there on this issue, and I sincerely hope you will be able to continue."
