Latte or Long Term Care?


Over twenty states are suing the Federal government over the Medicaid expansion. Medicaid is projected to consume more than a third of state budgets in 20 years, and the driver of that growth is LTC. A Florida judge ruled the federal government’s mandate for everyone to have health insurance unconstitutional on January 28, 2011 and said the entire health care reform act must be thrown out as one piece can’t be split apart from the rest. The Federal government has appealed and the case will be heard on June 8, 2011 by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
