Answering Bush SOTU Retirement Reform Challenge, Long Term Care Profession Urges Congress to Enact Bold Reform of Long Term and Post Acute Care Delivery Systems

In addition, Yarwood and Rosenbloom said, the plan will not just allow federal and state lawmakers to seize control of eldercare financing issues, but it also offers welcome help to the nation's Governors by dramatically restructuring the Medicaid program, which currently finances the lion's share of long term care in America. Medicaid, established in 1965, remains a literal lifeline for the nation's less fortunate elderly, and must be reformed in a manner that ensures consistent care and services, as well as their financing, and that relieves growing pressure on state government to devote ever-greater resources to pay for care.

The AHCA/NCAL and Alliance leaders said the alternative to these reform measures -- the inevitable collapse of the system under the growing weight of its outdated financing structure -- is unacceptable. The plan in its totality, they said, will reorganize the Medicaid long term care and Medicare post-acute care systems by centralizing and streamlining government services and making more private resources available to pay for care, which will benefit the consumer, provider and taxpayer alike.
