Representatives from PAHCS, Hilltop Care Center and Watkins make trip to State Capitol Forty members from the Wat- kins community, Hilltop Care Center and Paynesville Area Health Care System traveled to the Minnesota State Capitol March 21 to provide testimony in support of Bill #S.F. 87. This bill would allow for an operating rate adjustment, effectB/e October 1, for a nurs- ing facility if it is located within a quarter mile from another county who receives a higher per diem per resident bed. Hilltop Care Center, located in Mocker County, has continually received a Five Star Facility rating and is ranked 34 out of 386 in the Quality of Life Survey for nursing home facilities in Minnesota. How- ever, despite its excellent reputation and rankings, it receives lower reim- bursement rates based solely on its location. Long-term care facilities in Stearns County receive $18 to $35 higher reimbursement per day for each resident than facilities in Mocker County. Representatives Dean Urdahl and Larry Hosch, along with Sen- ators Scott Newman and Michelle Fischbach, have been instrumen- tal in authoring and co-author- ing the bills for nursing home rate adjustments. Administra- tion from Hilltop Care Center and Paynesville Area Health Care Sys- tem appreciate the strong sup- port from members of the Wat- kins City Council along with con- cerned members from the corn- munity who are committed to fair reimbursement for the care given to residents of Meeker County. UPDATE: Both the House and Senate bills have been included in omnibus bills that will be up for a vote in a few weeks. According to Rep. Larry Hosch, in their cur- rent state, these bills make 16-per- cent cuts to assisted liing, nurs- ing homes, and the disabled. He also recommends waiting for a let- ter-writing campaign until th Health and Human Seruices con- ference committee is named and w can write to them. We'll post those names and addresses here when they're available.
