Long-term care insurance provides more security for
the elderly
Research Institute of the Finnish Economy ETLA
Idea
The purpose of the study was to survey the long-term
care risks of the elderly as well as to introduce individual
long-term care insurance to the Finnish market.
Impact
The study highlighted the increasing challenges in
funding the long-term care system and the possibilities
of supplementing the public care system with individual
long-term care insurance. However, these insurance
payments should not cause increases to the public
service's customer payments. Additionally, municipalities
should give out reliable information on the availability, level and price of services in the
future.
Tekes role
The research project was funded through Tekes Innovations in Social and Healthcare
Services programme.
