LTC Bullet:  Long-Term Care's Race for Survival

Monday  February 5, 2001



LTC Bullets readers often ask us for sample speeches from which they can draw ideas to use in their own public addresses.  We've obliged occasionally by posting transcripts of lectures delivered by Center for LTC Financing President Stephen Moses on our website at  We've received so much positive feedback on these postings that we have
decided to add more of Steve's talks to the site.

The speech we are posting today is entitled "Long-Term Care's Race for Survival." You can find the transcript at the Center for LTC Financing's website at  Steve Moses gave this talk to the First Annual Society of Actuaries Intercompany LTCI Conference in Miami, Florida on January 23, 2001.  In it, he summarizes the Center's recently published LTC Triathlon study.  He diagnoses the malaise in America's long-term care service delivery and financing system.  And he makes an appeal for greater communication and cooperation between the private sector financiers, providers and insurers of long-term care.  Will America have an adequate long-term care system when the baby boomers need one?  How will we pay for it? What must we do now to prepare?  If you've ever asked yourself these questions, you'll want to read and consider this speech.

For future reference, the Society of Actuaries LTCI conference was a huge success.  Attendance exceeded expectations.  The content was high-level and outstanding.  Watch for the second annual version of this meeting, attend, and see for yourself.  Congratulations to Jim Glickman, Claude Thau, and all the others who brought this fine event to fruition.
