"News" piece on a $4.15 million reduction in Medicaid reimbursements to nursing
"News" piece on a $4.15 million reduction in Medicaid reimbursements to nursing homes being proposed by the King administration. According to Doyle Sowerby, former owner of Maine Stay and Sanford Health Care Facility, the state has already eliminated one of every five beds from the nursing home system, and the existing 8,000 beds are barely enough. The governor's proposed budget will force another 1,000 beds out of the system, Sowerby said. According to Rick Erb, director of the Maine Health Care Association, half of the 140 nursing homes in Maine are "technically bankrupt."
