The Baby Boomers-Are We Ready? – 57 Pages 

Let’s start this week’s discussion with identifying who makes up the baby boomer generation. Please research and post statistics about the baby boomer generation. (Remember to post your sources!) Why was there an increase of baby boomers all over the world after the war? How many baby boomers are retiring per day?…

Is that the baby boomers perhaps have to work because of the economic pressure of limited jobs for their children? The younger generation has more opportunities than the baby boomers.  Thoughts?  Is Obama Care the legal name for the ACA?

The baby boomer Generation consist of the individuals born in the years od 1946-1964. In the United States, currently there are approximately 66.2 million people that can be classified as baby boomer from a 2014 survey.

The baby boomer generation was also affected by unstable economic conditions resulting in a lot of parents unable to provide proper care for their children. A significant number of single parents came into existence due to the war claiming the lives of uncountable partners. On the other hand, this generation became the forerunner for scientific expansion and progress…

The Future of Long-Term Care – 49 Pages 

Let’s start by reviewing the financial picture of the long-term care (LTC) industry. Who are the main payers? What are some of the main financial challenges that the industry is facing? If a person goes into a long term care facility, do they have to give up their financial savings to the facility? Does Medicare pay for Long Term Care?  How? What does the patient pay? How much does the patient pay, Medicare pay and Medicaid pay or do they?…

With the large amounts of baby boomers as discussed in the first topic we can all come to the conclusion that this level of care is going to be in GREAT need for the next several decades to come! This is an area that interests me as my future goal is to leave the acute care setting and concentrate on this generation(one that I am apart of!) in a managerial role.  Medicaid is the largest source of funding(40%)LTC facilities…

As stated in our text book the primary payers for long-term care are Medicaid and Medicare. Each program pays entirely for or a segment of the services achieved by nearly a third of community residents. Almost a quarter of recipients pay out of pocket.

Medicaid is a major payer for long-term care due to the fact that federal law requires that Medicaid programs in each state should offer home health care and nursing home care for the qualified poor. It caters for nearly half of national long-term care spending.

Medicaid is the key contributor of long-term care while Medicare only offers a restricted coverage of home health care and nursing home stays. Most of the long-term care funding originates from taxpayers. With most of the middle-class Americans unable to fund long-term care necessities, they have added to the people who urgently need it. Funding has been a challenge due to the number of individuals who need it, and the resources required to offer long-term care…
