102K more workers needed to meet proposed mandate

Price of nursing home staffing mandate means nursing homes would need to spend more than $6.8 billion annually to meet a proposed federal staffing mandate, which also would require them to hire more than 102,000 new workers if enacted as originally introduced, according to an analysis updated Tuesday by accounting and consulting firm CliftonLarsonAllen.

That projected cost is nearly 60% higher than the $4 billion annual cost estimated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in a draft rule it issued Sept. 1. The CLA analysis was conducted in conjunction with the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living.

What CLA’s analysis confirms is that this proposed rule is deeply flawed, and the Biden  Administration has woefully underestimated the feasibility and cost of this unfunded mandate,”  AHCA President and CEO Mark Parkinson said in advance of the analysis’ release.
