The Ways & Means Comm submitted its proposed 2013 budget. Among other items: the Bed Hold for nursing home residents was eliminated; the PNA for nursing and...FOR MORE CLICK TITLE... rest home residents was placed at risk; frail elders at home would continue to be on a wait list for the ECOP home care program; elder nutrition was level funded and so meals will be available.
There will be a debate at the House the week of April 23 and then the budget goes to the Senate.
