Preserve Medicaid Provider Assessment
Critical Medicaid funding for nursing facility care is in jeopardy! As Congress looks for ways to pay for various legislative proposals at the end of this year, cuts to provider assessments are being considered. This is not a manageable cut for many providers and for your state in particular.
Currently, 43 states and the District of Columbia use the provider assessment program. Your state’s funding is particularly at risk because your provider assessment rate is already at the maximum allowable level. The provider assessment program is essential to funding quality long term care services for seniors and individuals with disabilities.
Contact your members of Congress today and tell them to oppose any legislative proposal that would reduce the maximum allowable Medicaid provider assessment rate or quality assessment fee!
