Eldercare Cost Saving Measures Proposed

Eldercare Cost Saving Measures Proposed

The Marois government wishes to save $1.5 trillion dollars in fifteen years with the installation of the new health home-treatment regime for people losing their autonomy.

A place in an eldercare centre costs on average three times more than offering the services to a person in their home.
35% of eldercare centres’ occupants could still live in their homes and receive the healthcare and support.

The health budget increases by keeping people in their homes as long as possible. The health insurance regime proposed by the government would allow reducing the number of admissions in eldercare centres by keeping people in the comfort of their own homes.

The Marois government is launching a meeting which will result in the creation of an autonomy insurance regime, which would be used to finance healthcare and services given to the people in loss of autonomy who could stay in their homes.

The autonomy insurance bank would be financed by income tax and possibly with contributions disbursed by receivers of the services. A parliamentary commission will be held in Autumn to debate on this governmental project.
