Abstract

The UK government released a new White Paper on the reform of adult social care at the beginning of December. The paper outlines the government’s strategy for ‘fixing social care’, but as Bernard Casey explains, the strategy fails to overcome the problem of means-testing. He also makes comparisons with Germany, where, despite a Long-Term Care Insurance Scheme operating since the mid-1990s, means-testing has persisted there, too.
