The state, in an attempt to get the federal government to contribute an extra $2
The state, in an attempt to get the federal government to contribute an extra $23 million toward subsidies for nursing-home care for the poor, a year ago extended the 7 percent tax on meals to nursing homes -- The tax only fell on the 15 to 20 percent of nursing-home residents who pay their own bills, but the state devised a rebate plan to return 80 percent of the tax payments paid by those individuals -- The federal Health Care Finance Administration says the rebate plan violates federal guidelines, and if federal funding is cut off it could create a $23 million hole in the current two-year state budget Details
