Action Needed: Contact the White House and CMS Today to Protect Long Term Care Medicare Funding

We are just days away from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issuing the SNF PPS final rule. The current CMS rule states that reimbursement rates must be cut immediately by approximately 12.8 percent, or nearly $4.5 billion. This would negatively impact nursing facilities, the economic benefits they bring to communities and the care they provide to millions of older Americans. As Washington focuses on the debt, it is critical that we continue to draw attention to this issue. The White House and CMS are currently working through the final details; NOW is the time to weigh in with these offices. You can make a difference by sending a letter today.

Please show them that we care, and tell them that they must do the right thing. Help send a letter today by clicking here.
