Introduction of insurance system for long-term care



Introduction of insurance system for long-term care



Nihon Ronen Igakkai Zasshi. Japanese Journal of Geriatrics 34(12): 970-972



The newly proposed insurance system for long-term care aims at providing elderly persons with quality care for their self-reliance. Under the proposed system, elderly persons themselves would choose services. Therefore, for its efficient use of services utilization, more coordination between health and welfare sectors will be required. To fulfill its purpose, specialists in geriatric medicine should take a major role, too. Health care providers will have to take into consideration each elderly person's whole life-style for self-reliance despite their health problems. The medical sector will also need to be familiar with the various procedures which would be essential for the smooth implementation of the system. These include not only the providing of care but also the documentation of care need which is one of the essential materials for the certification of care need which determines the reimbursement for the care.
