Elder Care Services

As Quoted In Home Health Care News

Advances will be driven largely by demographic changes in light of increasing life expectancy, as well the the large, post-World War II “baby boom” generation entering its retirement years.

US revenues to grow 5.2% annually through 2016

Revenues for the elder care services industry (skilled nursing, home health care, social services, continuing care, and assisted living) are expected to grow 5.2 percent per year through 2016 to $319.5 billion. Advances will be driven largely by demographic changes in light of increasing life expectancy, which is contributing to the rising number of individuals in the older population segments.

Growth will be further boosted by the large, post-World War II “baby boom” generation entering its retirement years. Gains will also be spurred by a recovery in the economy and the housing market, enabling older adults to more easily finance their care. Further growth will be restrained by continuing efforts at the state and federal levels to curb Medicaid and Medicare expenditures, often by either limiting reimbursements or by directing patients to less expensive forms of care. Elder care service providers compete functionally with informal caregivers, typically family members; however, a growing number of older adults either do not have family members who are able to care for them or simply prefer using professional care.

Medicare to be fastest growing payment source

Medicaid was the largest payment source for elder care services in 2011, accounting for 33 percent of revenues. Medicaid payments will grow the slowest of any payment source through 2016, restrained by expanded use of home and community based waivers for Medicaid care for less expensive home care. Medicare accounted for another 25 percent of overall payments, and is projected to be the fastest growing payment source through 2016. Out-of-pocket expenditures continue to be important in the continuing care and assisted living industries, as these services may not be covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

Private insurance coverage will rise as the aged population grows and individuals who doubt the government’s ability to provide future care purchase long term care insurance. Other payment sources include charitable donations, private grants, and other government resources such as the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

Home, community-based services to grow fastest

In 2011, skilled nursing facilities accounted for the largest share of elder care service revenues with 43 percent. However, home and community based services (e.g., home health care, social services, assisted living) are projected to achieve faster growth. Advances for home and community based services will be driven by continued state and federal efforts to shift Medicaid payments away from skilled nursing to more cost effective community based services. Additionally, many older adults prefer to age in place, remaining in their homes as long as possible.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $249 billion US elder care service industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by type (e.g., skilled nursing care facilities, home health care services, social services, continuing care retirement communities, assisted living facilities), provider (for-profit, non-profit), payment source (e.g., Medicaid, out-of-pocket, Medicare, private insurance) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry players such as Manor Care, Kindred Healthcare, and Golden Living.
