Medicare Cuts to Nursing Home Industry

Published on March 24th, 2018

The Republican budget includes a series of cuts to long-term health services. According to an analysis by the Congressional Budget Office, the new legislation reduces direct Medicare funding for nursing homes by $1.9 billion over 10 years – or $140 million starting in October.

Medicare delivers higher payouts, covers a broader range of costs and comes with more certainty. Even though Medicare patients have comparatively relatively short stays – they’re capped by law to 100 days – the overall revenue they bring in can stem the losses incurred by Medicaid patients.
