During the 2016 Presidential campaign, a major issue effecting virtually all American families was noticeably absent from the debate – long-term care coverage. Hopefully, that is about to change heading into the 2020 Presidential campaign. Senator Bernie Sanders and his Democratic colleagues in the House have included a long-term care benefit as part of the “Medicare for All” bill. I am not stating that Senator Sanders or the Democrats solution to long-term care coverage in this country is the correct solution. In fact, the Democrats have not proposed how the estimated cost of the program will be paid for. However, hopefully, the proposals will facilitate a needed discourse regarding long-term care during the 2020 Presidential election cycle. With approximately two-thirds of American adults favoring a long-term care program similar to Medicare, it is a debate long overdue.
