Steve Moses

Stephen Moses is President of the Center for Long-Term Care Financing in Seattle, Washington. The Center promotes universal access to top-quality long-term care by encouraging private  financing and discouraging welfare financing of long-term care for most Americans. Previously, Mr. Moses was Director of Research for LTC, Inc., a  Medicaid state representative for the Health Care Financing Administration and a senior analyst for the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Mr. Moses is widely recognized as an expert and an innovator in the field of long-term care. McKnight's Long-Term Care NEWS named him "one of the 100 most influential people in long-term care." Nursing Homes magazine reported "there is probably no more articulate spokesperson for privately financed long-term care than Stephen Moses." Best's Review called him one of the "people to watch in the coming year - likely to affect the course of the industry."

Steve Moses has directed numerous national studies for the federal government, state governments, and private organizations on Medicaid nursing home eligibility, asset transfers, estate recoveries and long-term care financing. He specializes in problems associated with "Medicaid estate planning," the practice of artificially impoverishing affluent people to qualify them for public assistance.

Moses is credited with having "forged the framework" for the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993,  which attempted to bring Medicaid eligibility loopholes under control. He helps state Medicaid programs curtail Medicaid estate planning and encourage private insurance as an alternative to public welfare financing of long-term care for the middle class.

Mr. Moses' articles appear often in distinguished publications like The Gerontologist, The Journal of Accountancy, Contemporary Long-Term Care, Best's Review, National Underwriter and LTC News & Comment. He is the author of "Health and Long-Term Care Insurance," a chapter in Clark Boardman Callaghan's legal treatise, Advising the Elderly Client. He has testified before half of America's state legislatures and he frequently addresses professional conferences in the fields of law, aging and insurance.

Steve Moses' recommendations are quoted regularly in the national media including the "CBS Evening News," PBS's "Frontline" and "The Financial Advisors," CNN, National Public Radio, The New York Times, Newsweek, USA Today, Forbes, The New Republic, Smart Money, National Journal, and Jane Bryant Quinn's syndicated column. He appears in a public television documentary entitled "The Aging of America: The Dilemma of Long-Term Care." His talk radio appearances on health  care reform are unique, provocative, and increasingly in demand.

Mr. Moses wrote the chapter on long-term care financing for a new anthology entitled Healthy Aging, edited by best-selling author Ken Dychtwald of Age Wave renown. He is writing another chapter for a book on the Long-Term Care Partnerships. He is also the author of LTC Choice: A Simple, Cost-Free Solution to the Long-Term Care Financing Puzzle and The Myth of Unaffordability: How Most Americans Should, Could and Would Buy Private Long-Term Care Insurance.
