AEPP Call: Special Issue on Long-Term Care

AEPP is publishing a special issue titled "New Developments in the Economics of Long-Term Care" and is looking for paper submissions. This issue will attempt to address questions regarding the role of market forces in providing and funding long-term care, the ways to overcome market failures and information asymmetries, incentives to expand the provision of long term care as well as financing schemes to balance out efficiency, access, and quality goals. The deadline to submit a paper is August 31, 2011.

The special issue is accepting contributions in the following areas:
  • The political economy of long-term care (LTC)
  • Asymmetric information between payers and recipients
  • The interplay between government, market, and family funding sources
  • Risk adjustment in public LTC systems
  • Market failures/inefficiencies in LTC insurance markets
  • Methodology to determine LTC insurance coverage
  • Personal care budgets as alternatives to finance and purchase of LTC
You can find more information in the Call for Papers.

This is the first in a series of AEPP special issues. If you're interested in being involved in a future special issue, you can learn more in the Special Issue Guidelines.
