“Short-Term Bailouts Won’t Fix Nursing Homes or Medicaid Home-Based Long-Term Care,” by Howard Gleckman, Forbes
“The illness and death that covid-19 has brought to older adults has created an historic opportunity for the US to rethink the way it delivers and pays for long-term care. Yet, much of the long-term care industry and even many advocates for older adults and younger people with disabilities are lobbying for short-term fixes, not real reform.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
This is another mindless appeal for government to solve the LTC problem without recognizing that government funding and intervention caused the problem. To learn how long-term care services and financing became so dysfunctional in the first place and what to do to fix it finally, read Medicaid and Long-Term Care.
