Abstract: Long-term care (LTC) needs are expected to increase in the next decades. This calls for more involvement of the market that today covers less than 10% of these needs. We analyze which features an optimal LTC insurance policy should incorporate. Following Arrow (1963) we suggest that such policy should consist of complete insurance above a deductible amount.
