Texas Nursing Home Medicaid

There recently was a great deal written about Texas Nursing Home Medicaid, and fittingly on April 1, 2011, the Texas House of Representatives gave final approval to two bills that will collectively close a $4 billion deficit in the current two-year budget cycle.  This will affect Medicaid and all nursing homes in Texas.

House Bill 4 makes about $1 billion in cuts in the annual budget. Texas House Bill 275 authorizes use of $3.1 billion out of the state’s Rainy Day Fund to close the gap. The lower chamber gave its preliminary approval of the bill the day before.
