The current long-term care financing patchwork in the United States contains many philosophical and operational deficiencies. Devising a better way to finance both institutional and community-based long-term care services for older persons is a pressing public policy concern. A number of serious proposals propounded in the past few years suggest ways to use public and private resources more rationally and effectively to address the long-term care financing problem. In this Article, Professor Kapp critically analyzes some of the more salient of these proposals in terms of the historical, demographic, economic, political, and legal contexts within which they have been formulated and to which they must respond.
