Long-term care can be expensive. As society ages, thinking about how to pay for care if needed is becoming a priority for many of us. Unfortunately people often find out too late that Medicare and Medicaid don’t cover all the costs. How can we protect ourselves financially against this risk? What is the current state of the private long-term care insurance market? How are Americans thinking about long-term care? And how is public policy tackling this issue? Join us for a FedTalk about long-term care insurance in the United States.

Following the presentation, we will take your questions.
