Kaiser Report Examines Financial Accountability of Nursing Homes (7/13)

Kaiser Family Foundation

The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured has issued the report, Improving the Financial Accountability of Nursing Facilities. This report examines nursing facility expenditures by cost category to assess relative spending increases in areas such as nursing services, administrative costs, and profits.

The report also explores two financial policy options designed to improve nursing facility financial accountability and care quality: (1) reimbursement by cost category and (2) a standard medical loss ratio (MLR) option.
