Stimulus Bill Requires Modification in U.S. Senate to Better Protect Seniors' Ongoing Access to Quality Nursing Home Care
Date:1/29/2009

m care leaders also pointed out that the long term care sector depends heavily upon Medicaid, which pays for the care of roughly two-thirds of nursing home patients. Medicaid, on average, pays nearly $13.00 per patient per day less than the cost of nursing facility care. For 2008 alone, it was projected that Medicaid paid $4.2 billion less than the actual cost of care - which already places patients and providers in a tenuous position.
