The NHS has faced an embarrassing financial crisis.
As a result, the government is now proposing to cap how much people can spend on a care plan, in a bid to encourage people to take the plunge.
The plans are part of a raft of measures aimed at making the health service more efficient and cost-effective.
Some have even been touted as a sign of progress by Jeremy Hunt, the health secretary, who is trying to cut costs and save the NHS billions of pounds.
But critics say the proposals are just a small part of the package.
Why the cap on your NHS care?
1 / 10 Theresa May: ‘It’s a good start’ Theresa May is the Conservative party leader.
She wants the NHS to get the same treatment as the rest of the UK.
The new plan will cap how many people can use a care package.
It is part of what is called the Care Bill, and it sets out how the government will tackle the health and social care crisis in the UK, which is expected to reach over 100 million people by the end of the decade.
What it does The caps on the number of people covered by a care bill will apply to people from 21 to 59.
The cap is £1,250 for a family of four, £3,200 for a single person and £4,000 for a couple.
The caps are meant to discourage people from spending more on a health care package and instead give priority to those who need care the most.
The government said it was a good starting point for reducing the costs of the NHS and improving efficiency.
“The Government is now making it clear that people should have access to the most cost-efficient and best-quality care available, but we will be following up with a detailed, credible and detailed analysis of how the caps will work in practice,” it said.
“Our goal is to ensure everyone is getting the best possible care and support, and that the NHS is as efficient and effective as possible.”
How much does it cost?
A care package will cost £4.60 a day for the first three months, then rises to £5.90 per day for four months and £6.70 per day thereafter.
The NHS spends £5,988 per person in the first year.

How can you help?
If you are a family with young children or carers, or a family who are eligible for social care, you can help by signing up for a care voucher or making a financial contribution to help cover the cost.
It costs about £20 a month to pay for a three-month care package, or £20 to help a family pay for an individual care package for up to four people.
But the government has also announced a new cap of £500 on the amount of time you can spend with a carer.
What happens if you get sick?
The government is proposing to give priority and limited access to people who are ill or in hospital.
This will include people with heart conditions, chronic conditions or cancer.
The health secretary has said this is necessary to prevent people dying.
The Health and Social Care Act, which comes into force in January 2019, aims to provide more access to care for those most in need.
How to get help and advice about the caps The cap on the cost of a care scheme is set to increase gradually over time.
The Government has set a target of a cap of no more than £1 million per month, but many experts are worried about this target, saying it could easily rise.
This is because of changes to the legislation introduced in the last parliament.
How long does it take to be able to access a care measure?
The NHS is set up so that it can be accessed from the NHS.
But for people who have been waiting for more than six months, the cap will apply from January 1.
The number of days the cap is in effect will increase gradually, from 1 to 6.
The final date is set by the Department of Health.
How much will you pay?
The cap will mean people who can afford to pay will be able spend £1.50 per day per family of three or more for up the first four months.
It will increase to £2.50 a day a day until June 2020, when it will be set at £3.50.
What if I have to work?
The health bill is intended to help people in work.
If you work for a company or a charity, you will not have to contribute to the cap.
However, if you are on a part-time contract, you may need to pay more than the cap, or you may have to sign up for more care packages.
What about carers?
The care vouchers and contributions will be available to all carers over the age of 16, with a cap on how much they
