A plan for rising costs of long-term care

A new study showed just how expensive health care is getting in the Bay Area.

Genworth, one of America’s largest long-term care insurers, recently released its 2016 cost of health care data. The results are based on surveys or interviews with thousands of health-care providers across the U.S. The data include estimates on the potential cost of services for dementia or a physical disability that requires support for basic living activities.

Within the first year, it sprang a few leaks, its jets malfunctioned and the filtration system went belly up. This trifecta of concerns provided a major headache.
