Major areas of consideration
Major Areas of Consideration

  • Aging

  • Service Demand

  • Service Supply

  • Financing

  • Responsibility and Authority for Policy

  • Flexible Systems (Peak Load)


Critical questions
Critical Questions

  • How will demand for different services change as a result of aging and new disease burden (e.g. dementia)?

  • Is the system of supports for aging sufficient to meet this growing demand (caretakers, institutions)?

  • Is a state solution the right answer? How do regional differences impact the questions being asked?

  • Does the growth of Medicare enrollment and changes in Medicaid (expansions to 55-64-year-old adults) provide opportunities?

  • What does a long-term-care accountable care organization look like?

  • How do these answers affect the state’s implementation of managed care for long term care services?

  • How do national policy changes (Affordable Care Act) and potential recommendations out of the long term care commission impact New Hampshire?

  • What role will the counties play in providing the services needed across the spectrum of long-term-care supports and services (Meals on Wheels to institutional care)?

  • Long-term-care expenditures are projected to grow more quickly then revenues. How will the state and counties finance these changes?

The national long term care commission
The National Long Term Care Commission 2013?

  • The Commission identified the following problems with the current LTSS system:

  • Currently, family caregivers are providing most of the care, but their responsibilities can be very overwhelming. Their availability will decline as more of the population ages.

  • Many Americans approaching retirement are unaware of how costly paid LTSS are and are not prepared for these expenses.

  • There are training and retention problems within the direct care workforce that will affect the quality and accessibility of practiced employees in the future.

  • Paid LTSS are fragmented and difficult to access. They often lack the focus and efficiency that would result in the best outcomes, all the while remaining a financial burden.
