Abstract: Aging populations add to pressure on health budgets, notably in long-term care (LTC). This development is particularly significant in the Netherlands, because of its relatively large, publicly financed LTC sector. The recent LTC reform aimed to substitute institutional care with aging-in-place, and thus reduce LTC expenditure. We investigate whether the reform actually went beyond shifting institutional care expenditure to other healthcare domains.
