Members of CongressExpress Concerns Over Proposed Nursing Home Cuts

July 13, 2022

Bipartisan groups of both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives sent letters to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, urging the Biden administration to reconsider a proposed $330 million cut in Medicare funding for nursing homes. In a statement, AHCA/NCAL underscored the negative impact funding cuts would have on seniors, especially as the long term care industry continues to grapple with a historic workforce and economic crisis.

Cutting millions in nursing home funding will put access to care for our most vulnerable citizens at risk.
