The Long-Term Care Insurance Educational Foundation will convene its 16th Private Long-Term Care Insurance Conference, "Shaping the Future," February 12-14, 2003 at the Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio, Texas.

According to its organizers, "The Private Long Term Care Insurance Conference series provides a non-partisan forum for educating attendees about the evolving long term care insurance market. The conference addresses the impact of state and federal legislative policies on the marketplace; the development of public-private partnerships; the improvement of long-term care access and quality, and financing the nation's long term care bill.

"The Private Long Term Care Insurance Conference series is the only conference of its kind. No other national meeting provides an opportunity for the public and private sectors to come together to discuss ways the private market and government can work together to meet consumer needs and reduce public Medicaid expenditures.

"Those attending represent an array of interests, ranging from state and federal policy makers, to long term care providers, to insurance industry representatives. Collectively, this group represents those individuals with the greatest expertise and interest in shaping public policy affecting long term care financing.
