Texas Health Care Association: Meeting Texas Seniors' Ongoing Care Needs Threatened by Looming State, Federal Funding Threats
Date:1/20/2010

ent Obama, includes additional deep Medicare cuts that "will have a significant, tangible, negative impact on local facility operations, quality improvement efforts, and the ongoing viability of facilities' front line care workforce."

Continued Graves: "It is essential to have a visible, engaged public discussion to help ensure our state lawmakers understand how and why federal Medicare spending is vital to propping-up Medicaid – and that keeping our state Medicaid program financially sound in the face of federal Medicare cuts is essential to protecting our most vulnerable."

The THCA President said the Senate and House Interim Charges, specifically those surrounding Health and Human Services, provide an excellent template from which to move forward in terms of generating a necessary discussion in regard to how lawmakers can help continue meeting Texas seniors' care needs in the face of budget threats. "A key priority throughout 2010 and 2011 must be to help preserve, protect and defend the economic viability of the facilities seniors depend upon throughout Texas," Graves concluded.

Founded in 1950, the Texas Health Care Association (THCA) is the largest long term care association in Texas. THCA represents a broad spectrum of long term care providers and professionals offering long term, rehabilitative and specialized health care services. Member facilities, owned by both for-profit and non-profit entities, include nursing facilities, specialized rehabilitation facilities, and assisted living facilities.
