“Facing stagnant Medicaid rates, this state has lost 10 percent of SNF beds in 2022,” by John Hall, McKnight’s LTC News
“The loss of seven nursing homes and hundreds of beds in a short period of time has set healthcare officials in Montana reeling, even as the state is trying to regain its footing following the brunt of the COVID pandemic. It’s part of a trend that has seen more than 1,000 nursing homes close since 2015, industry officials said. In just the past six months, Montana has lost approximately 10% of its nursing home beds. Operators of the closed facilities said they could no longer absorb losses in excess of $100 per resident per day.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
If only Montana had listened when we explained what was wrong with long-term care and what to do about it: LONG-TERM CARE IN MONTANA: A Blueprint for Cost-Effective Reform (1993).
