“Assisted living threatened by looming federal expirations”

Assisted living threatened by looming federal expirations,” by Lois A. Bowers, McKnight’s Senior Living



“A federal rule provision and a federal program, both of which help enable older adults to live in assisted living or at home rather than in nursing homes, are set to expire Dec. 31 unless Congress acts.”


LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):

Perfect follow up to the clipping we just sent because this makes it explicit that these two programs, possibly expiring soon, are the reason Medicaid census in assisted living facilities has leaped to 20%.
