A Demographic and Attitudinal Profile of Non-Buyers of the Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program

Publication Date

This is the second in a series of data briefs based on the information collected for a study of buyers, non-buyers, and non-responders to the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP). The purpose of this data brief is to analyze survey data collected from individuals who chose not to enroll in or purchase the plan — that is, "non-buyers". The analysis focuses on the attitudes, opinions and motivations of individuals who requested an information kit and application but did not purchase the policy. Where appropriate, the authors also compare these non-buyers to other individuals who have shown interest, but not purchased private LTC insurance either in the individual or employer group markets.
