ABSTRACT
This article reports that overall health care spending by seniors in the United States is projected to increase by 75% between 1992 and 2010, according to a new study. Nearly 13% of New York's residents are over the age of 65 years, and that number is expected to rapidly multiply as the first wave of baby boomers hits that golden age when many people retire. The study was commissioned by advocacy group Families USA. This special report focuses on the most pressing issues facing the elderly today: the emotional toll on caregivers, the new Medicare drug plans, and the failure of long-term care insurance.
