NAIC Releases Long-Term Care Insurance Study

May 25, 2016


Paper addresses market issues, innovations and regulatory concerns

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (“NAIC”) published a new study today, May 25, 2016, entitled The State of Long-Term Care Insurance: The Market, Challenges and Future Innovations.  The report includes contributions from state regulators, consumer advocates, academics and insurance industry executives.

Developed by the NAIC’s Center for Insurance Policy and Research, it explores key issues facing the long-term care insurance market.  It also provides a detailed overview of the economics and benefits of private long-term care insurance, the future demand of improved long-term care insurance, long-term care reform proposals and the regulation of long-term care insurance rates.

“Long-term care insurance has dramatically evolved in the past few years and consumers have struggled to keep up with changes in price and the insurance product itself,” said Teresa D. Miller, Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner and chair of the NAIC’s new Long Term Care Innovation Subgroup.  “This informative study considers the broader impact of the market on long-term care insurance and contemplates the future for this market.”

Today’s report complements and supports the Long Term Care Innovation (B) Subgroup created by the NAIC’s Senior Issues (B) Task Force.  The Subgroup is charged with examining the future of financing long-term care and the role the private market should play.
