|NEW YORK''S LONG-TERM CARE REFORM CONCEPT DESERVES SUPPORT||No one believes the current long-term care system is working as well as it
should. In fact, today an economic crisis threatens the Medicaid program and,
specifically, its long-term care component. Recently, a New York Bar Association
proposal called the "New York State Compact For Long Term Care" provides for
an alternative means of financing long-term care. The Compact, as it is known,
would assist seniors, providers and state governments in diffusing this problem
that affects so many people.
