Proposed Nursing Home Bill Of Rights Seeks To Limit Impact Of Managed Care

A nursing home lobbying group is rallying residents and their relatives and caregivers to push state lawmakers to support a “Nursing Home Residents Managed Care Bill of Rights.” 


The push was brought about by the state’s plans to transition all Medicaid residents in nursing homes to a managed care system.  The Health Care Council of Illinois says that threatens to strip patients of the ability to make decisions about their own care… and could actually lead to outcomes that are more expensive and potentially harmful to patients. 


But state officials contend the managed care system will lower costs and provide better coordination of health services.
