The structure of long-term care insurance imposes significant challenges on the German care system. The legal differentiation between outpatient, semi-inpatient, and fully inpatient care in particular has resulted in considerable issues since its implementation. Current outpatient care services offer a variety of services, from home care to medical treatment, and in result they are often similar to fully inpatient facilities. This presents challenges e.g. when attempting to justify varying insurance subsidies. The legal boundaries between different forms of long-term care services can prevent effective care and hinder the development of innovative care approaches.
In the United States, Medicaid’s Cash and Counseling program enables individuals requiring long-term care to manage their own long-term care funds. Join us for our upcoming Webinar „Exploring the Cash and Counseling program in long-term care in the USA„.
Our speaker Pamela Doty, Ph.D., is a Senior Policy Analyst and researcher in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. She counts the “Cash and Counseling demonstration” among her proudest accomplishments and will give us an in-depth look at the Cash and Counseling model and we will discuss potential and applicability of the model for the German care system.
