Featuring U.S. Senator Kit Bond (R, MO), October 17 Briefing (Hosted by LTC Financial Partners) Will Address Bold Objective: Affordable Long-Term Care for All
Fri, 7 Oct 2005, 11:22 EDT Edited by Christopher Simmons
KANSAS CITY, MO - Oct. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As 77 million baby boomers approach retirement and most Americans enjoy longer life spans, a time bomb ticks. What happens when tens of millions succumb to longer-lasting illnesses or injuries? Regular health insurance won't cover it. Uncle Sam doesn't want to. State-run Medicaid does contribute to long-term care expenses -- for the indigent. But Medicaid costs are ballooning to the breaking point. Family assets are commonly tapped, but soon run out except for the very wealthy. So who's going to protect longer-living Americans, so they can bounce back from down time without somebody going broke?
