“Senate Democrats’ Plan Boosts Spending on Medicare, ACA Subsidies, Long-Term Care,” by Michael McAuliff, Kaiser Health News
“Expanding so-called home- and community-based services for long-term care for seniors and people with disabilities would likely be based on Biden’s recent $400 billion proposal. Again, the duration and scope of the spending are debatable, but it would likely look something like a bill offered late last month by Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the chairs, respectively, of the Special Committee on Aging and the Finance Committee, as well as other lawmakers.”
LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:
Making Medicaid more attractive than ever before after it’s too late for someone to plan responsibly will only further discourage responsible LTC planning and diminish private LTC financing at market rates. LTC providers take note!
