Abstract

Applicants for care services offered by the National Long-term Care Insurance are required to submit a written docu- ment of assessments performed by a physician.These documents are used as a secondary source to determine the level of long-term care required by the applicant. Though necessary, physicians have not received evaluation or fee-dback regarding this process. We surveyed doctors, members of committees for long-term care level assessment, and long-term care team staff of the national health insurance corporation. What was considered useful information differed among the three groups. Integrating the feedback from these groups, we suggested improvements that could be made to this assessment process.
