The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (formerly AMDA) said in a statement Monday the “Medicaid provisions of this bill will be detrimental to millions of older adults.”

“As an organization representing post-acute and long-term care clinicians who take care of millions of elders and other seriously ill and disabled individuals who rely on these services, the Society urges the Senate to carefully consider any such proposals that would put the health of the patients our members treat at risk,” it said.
