In Unfolding Budget Debate, Alliance to Spotlight Flawed MedPAC Policy Guidance, Failure to Evaluate Medicaid Margins in Recommending Medicare Funding Levels

is the patient most negatively impacted." Rosenbloom also noted that "such cutbacks would disproportionately affect low income Americans, given the significant percentage of nursing home patients and direct care workers who would be most severely impacted by the President's proposal and MedPAC's recommendations."

Consistent Medicare funding is especially important at a time when states are struggling to balance their budgets, and many states are taking steps to cut Medicaid, a trend likely to accelerate if the President's proposed cutbacks in Medicaid funding also are adopted. "Since Medicare funds help ensure adequate resources are available to support Medicaid patients in nursing homes," Rosenbloom expressed concern that "the combined impact of Medicare and Medicaid cuts could be especially devastating to the nation's poorest nursing home patients."

Rosenbloom said the Alliance will make a concerted educational effort throughout to year to explain to policymakers on Capitol Hill and executive agencies why excluding Medicaid margins in formulating Medicare funding policy skews the perception of economic reality in a manner harmful to seniors and their growing complex care needs, as well as to the direct care workers who serve them.
