"In order to address the need to include long term care within any healthcare reform debate, the profession developed a comprehensive reform plan for long term and post-acute care systems, which contains solutions to address the ongoing struggle that exists for federal and state governments to commit adequate resources to meet today's needs and tomorrow's expectations."

"AHCA/NCAL and the entire long term care profession are ready and willing to work with Chairman Baucus, President-Elect Obama, and Members of the 111th Congress to ensure that our most vulnerable citizens have access to the critical care and services they need and deserve," Yarwood concluded.
