A business case for expanding Medicaid

January 14, 2013 in News

Now we can have an honest conversation about the costs and benefits of adding more uninsured Floridians to the state’s Medicaid rolls under a provision of the federal health reform law known as Obamacare. For after hyper-inflating the true cost, and getting pushback from legislative budget analysts, Gov.

Long-Term Care Program Is Casualty of “Fiscal Cliff” Deal

Provided by ElderLawAnswers

The final budget deal Congress passed to avert the “fiscal cliff” repeals a long-term care insurance program that would have helped keep the elderly and disabled out of nursing homes and off the Medicaid rolls.  In its place, the budget bill establishes a commission to come up with an alternative plan to make long-term care available for those who need it.
