Termination of coverage notices going out to nursing homes

Missouri Legislatures votes for radioactive waste inquiries

"When people get the letters, they're going to be frantic because they're only going to see one word that I could possibly lose my service", said Barrow.

The current fiscal year ends on June 30 and those at risk of losing coverage include individuals who receive nursing home care, group home or home-based services. "However, we can not provide services with no money to pay for them".

Because of the uncertainty with the state budget, thousands of seniors and nursing home residents will start getting notices this week telling them that they will have to move out of facilities on July first.

"No, there's no federal requirement for a specific date to send these letters". The House backed spending plan slashes hundreds of millions in healthcare spending. The letter says the state will review each patients' information to determine whether they qualify for another Medicaid program. The House has been unable to agree on what taxes should be passed to replace those that are falling off the books so far.

"This is premature at best, reckless at worst", Henry said. A state doesn't have to maintain those programs to continue participating in and receiving federal financing for Medicaid.

"The Louisiana Department of Health is beginning the process of notifying all impacted enrollees that some people may lose their Medicaid eligibility", Department of Health spokesman Bob Johannessen said.

"These are real people", said Health Secretary Rebekah Gee Wednesday, choking up during a press conference about sending the notices out.

LDH says the optional state Medicaid programs will be cut. Dardenne said the loss amounts to about $1.4 billion.

There are ways the Medicaid cuts - should the Legislature vote for them - could be delayed.

Some nursing homes are hoping for the best.

Jim Tucker, CEO of CommCare Corp., a nonprofit that operates 12 nursing homes in Louisiana, said residents could be affected by the glum news.

The notifications themselves may also be financially detrimental to nursing homes, industry leaders told the Times-Picayune. It could lead banks to seize assets or try to collect on loans the nursing homes have taken out.
