Trio of Nursing Home Groups Meet to Address Challenges
December 21st, 2018
A group of three nursing home groups met Wednesday to discuss the main challenges facing Nebraska facilitiesâ€”Medicaid reimbursement, low occupancy, and staffingâ€”reports Allison Mollenkamp for NET News.
The Nebraska Healthcare Association, Rural Health Development, and LeadingAge Nebraska identified these problems as well as possible solutions. Medicaid, in particular, is a prescient issue for nursing homes.
â€œThe nursing home industry needs its appropriation, the amount of money that the legislature sets aside for us, to be in our own bucket, and itâ€™s not co-mingled with all these other Medicaid programs out there,” says Ron Ross, president of Rural Health Development.
