The 2020 Long-Term Care Medical Symposium aimed to provide the long-term care actuary with context for considering morbidity and other macro-environmental factors that may impact LTC experience in the long term. The Symposium focused on the ideas from experts outside of the LTCI industry for the explicit purpose of gathering fresh perspectives on the issues that LTCI companies face such as expected timing of new claims onset, length of claim, life expectancy and cost of care.
The 2020 Symposium included discussion on trends in cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s, medical advances impacting LTC, the evolution of care delivery, and the role of technology. The impacts of COVID-19 was integrated as appropriate into all discussions. This session will include similar panelists for an interactive discussion and key learnings from the symposium.
