This chapter first describes the key elements of “comprehensive long-term care (LTC) policy” and makes the case that it is a reasonable policy target for advanced industrial nations. Second, it discusses the two “ideal models” for comprehensive LTC: direct public services and social insurance. Third, it analyzes the policy process. It examines how Japan first opted for direct services and then switched to an approach similar to Germany. Fourth, it turns to comparative analysis to try to explain how and why the Japanese program differs from that in Germany.

Keywords:   health care policies, long-term care, direct public services, social insurance, Japan, Germany
