June 12, 2022

Skilled Nursing News (6/12, Stulick) reports that the federal government “could soon require nursing homes across the country to spend most of their Medicaid payments on direct patient care, according to a Kaiser Health News report.” While “not yet formally proposed, the Biden administration’s strategy would limit the amount of Medicaid dollars used on operations, maintenance and capital improvements or considered profits.” If the measure “is in fact enacted, this would be the first time the federal government will have had a say on where nursing homes should spend their federal funding, according to the KHN article.”
