Perhaps the most obvious structural reason to be concerned about nursing homes is the ability of our elder care institutions to absorb the number of seniors that will need long term care over the next few decades.  In 2050, the number of Americans aged 65 and older will be more than double the current population of 40.2 million.

               Here is a scenario that plays out daily in America.  You were injured in a car wreck, you settled with your insurance company or won a judgment in court, and now you are ready to be paid.  Then your attorney says he or she cannot settle because of TRICARE, the Department of Defense health care program.
