LTCO - Long Term Care Ombudsman shared National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care's post.
Today is a National Medicaid Call-In Day to advocate against changes proposed in the American Health Care Act that would gut Medicaid. These changes threaten the care and well-being of nursing home residents and other long-term care consumers. Please take action to protect all those receiving services and supports in nursing homes, assisted living and at home. We thank SEIU for making a toll-free number available. Calling in will take just a few moments and is as easy as 1-2-3: 1. Dial 866-426-2631 2. Enter your zipcode and # 3. Leave your message with the person who answers the phone. You will not have much time for your message, so make it short and sweet. Here are some “ready-to-go” talking points you can use: • Vote no on the American Health Care Act • The proposal would result in drastic cuts to Medicaid • Medicaid is the only way most people pay for long-term care in the United States because this care is so expensive – the annual cost of a private room in a nursing home is $92,378; the annual cost of a home health aide is $46,332* • Cuts would mean that our grandparents and parents won’t get the nursing home care or home care they need and may have no one to take care of them • Please oppose the American Health Care Act - we can’t turn our backs on our loved ones and the most vulnerable in our country

Consumer Voice issued the following statement on the American Health Care Act. The American Health Care Act is detrimental for long-term care consumers and those who care for them. Proposed changes to Medicaid, the primary payer of long-term care in this country, to a capped payment system would result in cuts to the amount of money states receive, impacting the services provided to beneficiaries. Inevitable cuts will mean that states will likely change Medicaid eligibility requirements, and reduce services being offered, including access to long-term care. Medicaid pays for more than half of all long-term care in the United States, and nearly 50% of all nursing home costs. The annual cost of a shared room in a nursing home is more than $82,000 per year. Few individuals or families can afford that for an extended period. These proposed changes would impose tremendous financial burdens on individuals needing long-term care and their families. Additionally, the American Health Care Act will make it harder for caregivers to obtain affordable health insurance. Many direct care workers receive minimum wage, but are not provided with health benefits through their employer. The Affordable Care Act was instrumental in providing affordable health care for many direct care workers, including through the expansion of Medicaid to individuals who live below 138 percent of the federal poverty level. The proposal in the American Health Care Act to eliminate the Medicaid expansion, now implemented by 31 states, will put at risk the health care of hundreds of thousands of direct care workers. Congress must reject the American Health Care Act because it is harmful to those who most need access to care.

Consumer Voice, the National Center on Elder Abuse, and the National Organization for Victim Assistance issued a joint statement regarding the recent CNN investigation on sexual abuse in nursing homes. Read the statement below: Wednesday’s report by CNN, Sick, Dying and Raped in America’s Nursing Homes is a shocking reminder that abuse, including sexual abuse, of nursing home residents continues to be a very real problem. Residents and families need to have confidence that when they turn to a long-term care facility, that every possible step will be taken to protect them from such horrific acts. Too often, frail, vulnerable residents, including those living with dementia, are targeted by abusers who use fear and intimidation, or even a resident’s cognitive impairments to try to avoid prosecution. Federal regulations state that all residents have the right to be free from abuse. Additionally, nursing homes must ensure that they have written policies and procedures to prevent abuse, to investigate any allegations, and to ensure that any allegations of abuse are reported immediately to the appropriate agencies.
