Senate Finance Committee to Vote on Health Care Reform Act including Elder Justice Act

The Senate Finance Committee is set to vote tomorrow, October 13, on health care reform. The bill includes nursing home transparency, background checks on LTC Workers and the Elder Justice Act. The Finance Committee bill will have to be merged with a bill already passed by the Senate HELP Committee. A key provision of the bill, disclosure of entities that provide financial guarantees of more than $50,000 to nursing homes, has already been stricken from the Finance bill even before the debate began. Please contact your local congressman to voice your support for the Elder Justice Act. To read more about the upcoming vote, please visit the NCCNHR’s website.
