National Long Term Care Leaders Praise Overall Baucus Health Reform Effort, Express Specific Concerns Moving Forward

se settings.

We also are encouraged the new policy document includes nursing home transparency provisions that, overall, offer a sound approach to assuring providers report more meaningful information to the government, and that useful information is made available publicly. We support greater transparency and accountability, but several provisions in the options document may merit modification upon further review.

Moving forward, we urge the Committee to consider the need to address not only rationalization of the post-acute system but also reform of the long-term care delivery system. Now is the time to recognize and act upon the fact that patients, especially older Americans, have both chronic and intermittent health care needs. The options paper begins to address chronic care needs and care coordination, but remains incomplete until it also encompasses reform of the long term care system.

We look forward to working with Senators Baucus and Grassley, the other members of the Senate Finance Committee and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee to refine these options into a comprehensive health care reform proposal that earns the strong support of Congress, President Obama, and the American people.
