Coalition to Protect Senior Care: Bush Budget Plan Dangerous to Seniors' Front Line Care Needs
Date:2/7/2008

the letter, "Considering the reality that our nation's governors are bracing for more problematic state budget conditions, resulting in part from the continuing growth in the cost of providing quality care, it is perplexing that the Administration would set out this course of action. Conditions today are as challenging as they were when CMS issued its original guidance.

This crucial Medicare update allows for annual cost of living increases for staff, increases a facility's ability to enhance staffing, and provides the vital resources needed to improve and refurbish the facility with modern equipment and technology."

The CPSC membership - representing health care assistants, long term care nurses, certified nursing assistants and others who deliver round-the-clock, front-line care to seniors - are in Joplin, MO this week to consider the specifics of how, and in which states, they will fight the Bush budget plan. "In fighting the Medicare cuts, we will be considering a variety of ways to convey our message, including the use of paid media and grass roots activities successfully utilized in a variety of states in 2007." Cantrell noted the CPSC generated more than 15,000 letters to Congress at a key time of last year's budget deliberations.

The Coalition to Protect Senior Care consists of the American Association for Long Term Care Nursing (AALTCN); the American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA); the American Association of Nurse Assessment Coordinators (AANAC); the National Rural Health Associ
