We are the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living and we stand for protecting quality long term and post-acute care. Over the past several years, skilled nursing facilities and assisted living residences have absorbed billions in Medicare and Medicaid cuts, and Congress is considering even more. Continuous cuts threaten access to quality care for America's growing population of seniors and access to quality jobs for America's workforce.
With tens of millions of baby boomers beginning to enter their golden years, and more seniors living longer, the demand for care is growing. Skilled nursing and assisted living providers are preparing to meet this demand, but future funding cuts pose a real threat to this critical service.
This doesn't have to happen.
You can get involved. Take action today — call your Member of Congress and tell them to preserve, protect and defend quality skilled nursing, rehabilitative care and assisted living care services for seniors and people with disabilities. Check out our resources page and learn about the proposed cut to provider assessments that skilled nursing and assisted living facilities face.
