Nursing Home Group Fights Proposed Medicaid Cuts

Nursing homes say they already have two strikes against them in the way the state of Illinois handles Medicaid payments… and Governor Pat Quinn’s proposed cuts would be Strike Three. 


A nursing home coalition says its members already get the lowest Medicaid reimbursement rates in the nation… and whatever money the state is supposed to pay often arrives six months or more late.  And the group says if Quinn succeeds in having rates cut even more, it could force many homes to evict some residents, or perhaps go out of business entirely.
