Estate Planning News - the high cost of long term care

Long term costs, it costs a lot, and now the press scrutinizes the industry. The New York Times published an article with the headline Aged, Frail and Denied Care by Their Insurers. Thanks to The Elder Law Prof for pointing the way to the article. Elder Law Prof collected some reactions to the article here. Prior to that post, Elder Law Prof has the post titled Fidelity estimates a retiree needs $107,500 for health care costs based on a story out of Houston. Finally, from the PA Elder, Estate & Fiduciary Law Blog comes links from a four-part series in the local newspaper that brings these issues down to a local level.
