Long-term care is the personal care and household help you need as you grow older or have a chronic illness or disability. Medicare and your health insurance do not pay for most long-term care.
Own Your Future is helping Minnesota prepare for the dramatic increases in the number of people who will be age 85 and older by the year 2030. Many of these individuals will need long-term care.
Own Your Future includes making Minnesotans more aware of the need to plan for their long-term care, developing more affordable and suitable insurance and financial products that can help middle income Minnesotans pay for their long-term care, and aligning incentives so that Medical Assistance is supportive of private financing of long-term care.
