Financing Long-Term Care: Big Challenges, Limited Options

Paying for long-term care remains a major unresolved challenge in New York State and the nation. A new report from the United Hospital Fund’s Medicaid Institute, Financing Long-Term Care: New York’s Limited Options and Medicaid’s Vast Challenge, examines how long-term care is financed nationally and considers the circumstances experienced by many Americans. The report also focuses on federal policy, discussing Medicare’s extremely limited coverage of long-term care and the recent enactment and suspension of the CLASS Act. Delving deeper, the report discusses options in New York, with an analysis of the state’s private long-term care insurance market, opportunities presented by alternative financial products, and the pivotal role of default payer played by Medicaid—which, in 2010, spent over $13 billion on long-term care for the frail elderly and physically disabled.

Written by Sarah Samis and Michael Birnbaum, Financing Long-Term Care: New York’s Limited Options and Medicaid’s Vast Challenge is available on the Fund’s website.

Defining Essential Health Benefits: Federal Guidance and New York Options

Author/Editor: Peter Newell

See the related press release. The Affordable Care Act and subsequent federal guidance set minimum standards for “essential health benefits,” but also gave states much discretion to define those benefits by selecting a benchmark plan from a list of ten popular plans and supplementing those plans as necessary. States choosing this route must select a benchmark by the third quarter of 2012. Defining Essential Health Benefits: Federal Guidance and New York Options, written by Peter Newell, explores options for New York policymakers in determining what “essential health benefits” will be required for all individual and small group policies for a transtional two-year period beginning in 2014. The report examines and compares the ten health benefit plans representing likely options for a New York benchmark plan and reviews benefit coverage in the context of current New York mandates and regulation. The report discusses the potential policy implications of the various choices and highlights key areas requiring further guidance and analyisis. Defining Essential Health Benefits is the fifth in a series of ACA-related reports by the Fund that are supported by the New York State Health Foundation. Links to previous reports appear below.
