Long-term care federal/state special project
The Long-Term Care Awareness Campaign, “Own Your Future”, is a project to increase consumer awareness about the need to plan ahead for long-term care. The Campaign is a unique partnership between the federal government – HHS agencies including the Administration on Aging (AoA), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) – and the states. To date, successful campaigns have been launched in 8 states that provide tools and information to help individuals make the best choices for their potential long-term care needs. The Campaign is currently planning a next phase, Phase III, which will include additional state campaigns and an expanded consumer website for long term care information.
