Demanding Money and Immunity

Published on July 19th, 2020

Nursing home operators are anxiously anticipating another bailout and windfall in the fourth, and likely final, coronavirus relief package from the federal government. Observers assume Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have a proposal ready to unveil by the time he returns tomorrow. He promised lawsuit protections and further checks to long-term care operators.

Cliff Porter, senior president of governmental affairs for the American Health Care Association, told McKnight’s Long-Term Care News said long-term care providers will be lobbying for delayed paybacks for a Medicare advance payment program. Operators will be pushing for more funding in any “relief” packages, Porter said.

Lawmakers will have just a few weeks before another recess kicks in and attention shifts to the fall elections. McConnell is worried about campaign contributions. Money is at the root of all his concerns.
