State Budget Proposal Hurts Ability to Care for Most Vulnerable Ohioans
Date:2/2/2009

ore job losses -- and it's not necessary. The federal stimulus plan provides the money for reasonable rate increases for Ohio skilled nursing facilities to meet these increased demands, but the Governor seems to have chosen not to take advantage of the opportunity," Melamed concluded.

A recent national study estimates that Ohio's Medicaid program paid $14.86 less per patient per day than the average skilled nursing facility's cost of delivering care in 2008, a total shortfall of approximately $281 million.

The Skilled Nursing Care Coalition (www.caringforohio.org) is composed of three associations that represent the continuum of care providers and residents served by them. Those associations are AOPHA (www.aopha.org), the Ohio Academy of Nursing Homes (www.OANH.org) and the Ohio Health Care Association (www.ohca.org). The Coalition advocates for fair and reasonable government funding for frail seniors who rely on government for their health care needs in whatever setting they choose and in which their needs can be reasonably accommodated, and educates state elected officials, state agencies, the media and the public on the changing field of senior services, particularly the change of skilled nursing facilities to the post acute care centers they have become. The Skilled Nursing Care Coalition is committed to ensuring that older and disabled Ohioans have quality care across the continuum.
