A microeconomic analysis of the impact of estate recovery for long-term care

France’s personalized autonomy allowance (APA) was created in 2002 to address the problem of caring for dependents. The allowance is in the form of a payment of a portion of the expense of personal and homecare services (“copayment”). This allowance is universal and is available to anyone over the age of 60. Eligibility and the amount allocated to eligible persons depends on the level of dependency, and the amount of expense remaining to be paid is based on income.
