Emerging from the Society of Actuaries (SOA) Long Term Care Think Tank in 2015 were two new product concepts designed to be affordable for the middle market.  Since then, both concepts (LifeStage and Retirement Plus) have been developed further, including both qualitative and quantitative market testing.  Both products showed strong market potential, reported on elsewhere. 

(See:  Long Term Care and the Middle Market and Results from a Society of Actuaries’ Consumer Research Study. )
Another important consideration for the market feasibility of these products is the impact they might have on realizing savings to Medicaid, especially given that both products hope to include some component of tax-favored treatment in their design.  This session focuses on the modeling that has been done under a variety of scenarios to explore the potential for Medicaid savings under the current environment (no tax preferred treatment) and under two more favorable tax scenarios.  The discussion also illustrates the impact on tax revenue under the various scenarios.
