Nation's Front Line Caregivers Mobilizing to Help Defeat Obama Implementation of Damaging Medicare Regulation
Date:5/4/2009

$1.05 Billion FY 2010 Proposed Medicare Cut Weakens Key Health Care Delivery System Reforms Now Benefitting Patients, Strengthening Frontline Workforce

JOPLIN, Mo., May 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Coalition to Protect Senior Care (CPSC) today said it is mobilizing to defeat a Medicare regulation put forward for implementation Friday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The proposed Medicare rule, a Coalition spokeswoman said, would cut Medicare funding by $1.05 billion in FY 2010 and $5.6 billion over five years, eliminate the key front line care jobs that make a positive difference in patient outcomes, and significantly undercut ongoing improvements in clinical infrastructure already underway now benefitting patients.

"With so many good health care reform ideas coming from the new Obama Administration, it is curious and distressing to see a previously-discredited Medicare regulation appear on the policy radar screen," said Lisa Cantrell, a co-founder of the National Association of Health Care Assistants, and a national spokesperson for the Coalition to Protect Senior Care. "The new CMS directive is enormously frustrating to America's front line caregivers because its net impact will be to reverse existing federal policy that is currently benefitting elderly patients."

Cantrell, pointing out that a bipartisan coalition of forty Democratic and Republican U.S. Senators worked last year to derail the same Bush Administration proposal, said that as the nature of America's skilled nursing facility (SNF) patient population continues to evolve due to demographic and policy changes, the federal government's role should be to help facilities' direct care staff treat the high-acuity individuals increasingly seen in facilities nationwide. Moreover, Cantrell warned, the direct care staff that help make the key difference in quality outcomes will also be significantly harmed by the CMS action. '/>"/>
