New Letter to Rangel, Waxman, Miller from National Seniors Coalition Outlines Concerns With House Tri-Committee Health Reform Bill
Date:7/8/2009

use legislation will cut Medicare nursing home funding by $44.9 billion over ten years.

Continues the letter: "Compounding the impact of health care reform cuts is the proposed rule that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is expected to finalize by August 1, which will cut $16 billion in Medicare funding over 10 years.

"Since women fill 95 percent of long term care jobs and minorities comprise 30 percent of our workforce, the proposed cuts would heavily affect minor
