The new, revised version of the National Alzheimer's Plan gives little attention to the idea that private insurance could help consumers prepare for the cost of dealing with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

The Advisory Council on Alzheimer's Research, Care and Services -- an official U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) advisory board created by the National Alzheimer's Project Act of 2011 (NAPA) -- is supposed to lead efforts to find ways to prevent or treat dementia by 2025.
