Abstract

Reimbursement system for long-term care have to be based on the several principles: reimbursing cost of the care provision, maintaining quality, containing unnecessary cost, and minimizing administrative cost. Although it is difficult to adopt single system to satisfy all stakeholders, first of all characteristics of long-term care should be considered in developing the system. Among them, prepayment system based on the functional classification of the subjects would be given the highest priority, because resource utilization of the elderly people who need long-term care would be dependent on the functional status rather than diseases or specific problems.
