Long-Term Disability Discussed in Health Care Reform

A new federal insurance program is among the measures being debated in the health legislation bill. The program would provide cash benefits to those with long-term disabilities. The bill is meant to help people with severe disabilities who wish to live in a community, although a person could also use the benefits toward assisted living or nursing home care.

Advocates of the measure say that it is a step in the right direction to help aging baby boomers and people with disabilities. However, critics say that the program could create financial problems for the government in the future.
