New Study of House Health Reform Bill: California Faces Over $3.7 Billion in Medicare-Funded Nursing Home Cuts Over Ten Years
Date:8/24/2009

reductions over ten years - combined with the $12 billion ten year Medicare cuts just put into effect by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) - is computed by the AHCA Reimbursement and Research Department using the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) score of both HR 3200 and the recent CMS funding rule, along with Medicare Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) utilization data.

Other states with cuts exceeding $1 billion over ten years include Florida, New York, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, Indiana, North Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and Tennessee.

"Congress should preserve, protect and defend seniors' Medicare-funded nursing home care, and that should be a priority when federal lawmakers reconvene to take up health care reform in September," added Gomez.

All 50 State Cut Data Available at www.ahca.org.
