LTC BULLET: SAVE LONG-TERM CARE CAMPAIGN
LTC Comment: For reasons we discuss daily in "LTC E-Alerts" and "LTC Bullets," long-term care financing in the United States is about to change radically . . . in ways that will hurt the poor, the affluent and everyone in between.
Americans used to be able to ignore the risk of long-term care, avoid the premiums for private insurance, and easily protect most of their wealth while the government paid for expensive LTC if and when they needed it. That era is coming to an end.
When? Certainly within ten years; possibly as soon as three to five years.
Smart consumers will get in front of this trend and ride the Age Wave to a happier conclusion. Less savvy people will be crushed financially and emotionally as the toll of caregiving falls more heavily than ever on families, especially wives, daughters and daughters-in-law.
When the bottom falls out of government-financed long-term care, consumers will have very few choices. They'll spend quickly through their savings and then turn to home equity conversion.
The only way to avoid that outcome is to plan now and insure privately for long-term care. Unfortunately, most people are asleep about the risk and cost of LTC because government has always picked up the biggest tab in the past. So, very few buy LTCI.
That is the dilemma we face. And that's why we need a "Save LTC Campaign."
