“Long-term care” insurance policies

Buccelli C., Sirignano A.


PDF


Long-term care insurance (LTCI) policies represent an innovative form of private insurance that appear to offer an interesting way integrating public and private personal care for individuals who are no longer self-sufficient because of old age and/or illness. In Italy this product is still at the launch phase and the authors underline the main actuarial and socio-economic features. They also discuss the medicolegal questions raised that need to be resolved in order to allow LTCI policies the expansion they undoubtedly deverse in view of their possible social function.
