- Healthcare Reform Proposals in U.S. House Set to Cut Medicare Funding For Maine Seniors in Nursing Homes by Nearly $252.3 Million Over Ten Years -

Senator Olympia Snowe Thanked For Voicing Concern Regarding Nursing Homes' Unique Funding Challenges

KENNEBUNK, Maine, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Area nursing home caregivers, residents and family members gathered with representatives of a national coalition of nursing home clinicians today at Kennebunk Nursing & Rehabilitation Center to sign a petition to members of Maine's Congressional delegation asking for their support in ensuring that Medicare funding for nursing home care remains sufficient for delivering quality care for seniors and protecting local caregiver jobs. They also thanked Maine Senator Olympia Snowe for voicing her concern yesterday about the unique challenges facing nursing homes as the health care reform debate continues in Washington.

"We fully support what Congress is striving to achieve with healthcare reform. However, we believe that proposals in place to cut Medicare funding for seniors in nursing homes would place an unfair burden on our nation's most vulnerable seniors who depend upon this important care," said Lisa Cantrell, President of the National Association of Health Care Assistants (NAHCA) and a founding member of the Coalition to Protect Senior Care (CPSC). "We as caregivers do everything we can, day-in and day-out, to make our residents' experience a positive one, and we believe these funding reductions would lead to job cuts in important positions like these that can make a real impact on seniors' care outcomes."

Under current U.S. House of Representatives healthcare reform legislation - now in the process of being modified - Medicare funding for seniors in nursing homes would be cut by more than $32 billion over ten years, equating to a loss of nearly $252.3 million in funding for Maine seni
