AHCA Statement on Senate Budget Proposal

Washington, D.C. — The American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) President and CEO Mark Parkinson today issued the following statement regarding the Senate budget proposal:


“We are disappointed that the Senate budget proposal includes a $2 billion cut to skilled nursing facilities. An across the board cut like the one included in this bill would have a dramatic effect on our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. The low Medicaid reimbursements in many states do not cover the cost of care and providers struggle to keep their doors open. This cut will further jeopardize their important work.”
