A new government Web site for seniors highlights the risks and costs of long-term care, according to its creators.

The National Clearinghouse for Long-Term Care Information Web site also provides information about states with long-term care partnerships under Medicaid. In addition, it notes availability and limitations of coverage for long-term care under Medicaid, according to Josefina G. Carbonell, assistant secretary for Aging in Health and Human Services. She introduced the site on Dec. 15.

The clearinghouse site was designed by HHS' Administration on Aging, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation. See the National Clearinghouse for Long-Term Care Information at www.longtermcare.gov .
