Canadians are used to the idea of universal health care but not when it comes to LTC insurance and one warm weather state is considering introducing universal LTC insurance which could be a game changer for the elderly in that state

    I wouldn't call $70 per day for 1 year "universal LTC insurance".

    At best, this is "short term care" insurance.

    And, what's worse, is that the soonest the $70 per day benefit can be accessed is 10 years AFTER the new tax starts.

    We won't know if this "worked" until 2027 at the earliest.
