National Coalition of Front-Line Skilled Nursing Clinicians: Bipartisan Momentum to Stop CMS Medicare Regulation, Subsequent Funding Cuts, Grows in Congress
Date:7/29/2009

Caregiver Coalition Applauds Congressional Outcry Over Proposed Regulation That Would Cut Billions From Medicare Funding for Skilled Nursing Care

WASHINGTON, July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Coalition to Protect Senior Care (CPSC) -- a national coalition of front-line clinicians and caregivers dedicated to ensuring the ongoing provision of quality skilled nursing care -- today commended the growing bipartisan call from U.S. Senate and House leaders to rescind a proposed Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) rule that, if finalized, would inflict $16 billion Medicare funding cuts to seniors' skilled nursing facility (SNF) care over the next 10 years. In new letters to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, lawmakers warn the Medicare regulation places seniors' care at risk, and threatens 30,000 long term care jobs.

In a July 27th letter from U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) to the HHS Secretary, the Senator warns:

"As you know, stable Medicare funding for SNF care is essential because of significant and historic underpayments by state Medicaid programs, which have been especially hard hit in the current economic climate. Moreover, skilled nursing care has repeatedly been shown to be cost-effective treatment for patients with longer term health care needs ... It is my understanding that the proposed regulation does not account for the increasing complexity of care provided to SNF patients and more analysis is needed to understand other market factors that may impact the SNF case mix ... It is my hope that the Administration will refrain from finalizing the forecast error proposal until Congress secures passage of its health reform legislation so that we can work collaboratively with the SNF community to contain cost growth in the sector while protecting recent improvements in quality of care and patient outcomes ..."
