Generations, Spring 2019 | $15,000–$22,500 The Financing of Long-Term Care (Guest Editor: Ruth Katz, Senior Vice President, Public Policy/Advocacy, LeadingAge)
This issue will explore long-term care and how it might be paid for and sustained via a range of available national options, current approaches in states, and an examination of the financial, service, and human impacts of national options. The issue acknowledges the central role of out-of-pocket payments and Medicaid; the unpaid care that family caregivers provide; limitations of Medicare for supporting long-term care for older and disabled populations; the experience to date for private long-term-care insurance; and the political and other impediments that have thwarted the adoption of a universal approach. Previous attempts at long-term care financing reform, such as the Health Security Act, the CLASS Act and the Commission on Long-Term Care will be described and analyzed.
Generations, Summer 2019 | $15,000–$22,500 Aging in Rural America (Guest Editor: Dennis Dudley, Aging Services Program Specialist, Region IX, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living)
“We depend on Generations to keep us stimulated and thinking beyond what we work with daily.”
This issue of Generations seeks to provide readers with a broad overview regarding elders in rural America, offering a “snapshot” of rural America today, based on where it has been and where it may go. Articles will focus on developing a discussion about what some people have called the “forgotten America,” and will explore various topics, starting with a “demographics by the numbers” section, as well as other sections addressing the current barriers and challenges to aging in rural America, what’s being done to rectify these challenges (or not), and culminating in a section positing the future of the people, services, and politics shaping the rural aging culture.
