This webinar hosted by Alliance for Health Policy discusses issues both new and old in long-term care. Congress and the administration modified over 200 Medicare regulations, which has afforded response flexibility to providers, Medicare Advantage plans, and Part D plans. But how do these flexibilities impact the long-term care sector? Panelists overview the recent changes, remaining gaps, and benefits and risks to long-term care patients, caregivers, providers, and payers. Speakers of the webinar discuss whether similar actions should be replicated in future public health emergencies and highlight policy options to bolster the long-term care system moving forward.
