“New Study Identifies Major Gaps in Medicaid Structure”

“New Study Identifies Major Gaps in Medicaid Structure,” by Whitney Munro, Foundation for Government Accountability

“A new study has identified a major loophole in the structure of Medicaid that has led to massive cost overruns and a shortage in available funds for truly needy individuals. According to the study, eligibility expansions and loopholes have led to a perversion of Medicaid, creating an entitlement program for the middle-class. The report, How to Fix Long-Term Care Financing,  co-published by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) and the Center for Long-Term Care Reform, found that the current structure of Medicaid has created a perverse incentive for middle-class and affluent seniors to plan their estates in order to qualify for the long-term care program. . . . The full text of How to Fix Long-Term Care Financing  can be viewed here. For more information, please contact Stephen Moses at 425.891.3640.”
