FY 2012 Budget
The Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care is launching a new ad campaign to remind lawmakers that skilled nursing and rehabilitation service facilities are the second-largest health facility employer in the United States.
President Obama released his $3.7 trillion budget for FY 2012 Monday, and it would lower Medicaid payments to healthcare providers by $28.8 billion over 10 years.
Healthcare providers are worried that the Medicare and Medicaid cuts predicted in President Obama's FY 2012 budget will affect the quality of care offered in skilled nursing facilities, and damage the U.S. economy's fragile recovery as well. The president's budget is expected to be released Monday.
