55% Solution?

Let us not forget that, for those who have estates subject to Federal Estate Tax rates up to 55%, good old Uncle Sam
might well be giving up 55% of at least the first dollars spent on long-term care.

That may not be a total solution for everyone, however it should be some consolation for many, and may be a total
solution for a few.

In any event, I do believe that at least it should be taken into consideration when it is appropriate to do so.


Long Term Care

I overlooked this, this is a good point. The goverment is a co insurer if you self insure.

Also, the preminums may not be tax deductible because of the 1040 limits on medical deductions.
