In recognition of the enormous social and economic impact of long term care and the costs associated with that care, a bill was introduced in the House of Representatives to increase the accessibility of long term care insurance (LTCI) to Americans.

The "Long-Term Care Affordability and Security Act" would would permit LTCI to be included in employer-sponsored cafeteria plans and flexible spending accounts (FSAs), enabling people to pay LTCI premiums using pre-tax dollars.
