Home-based Care Left Out of Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan

President Joe Biden has been making negotiations to get his massive infrastructure plan over the finish line. Some funding related to health care that was originally in the plan ended up on the cutting room floor.

In particular, $400 billion in federal Medicaid funding for home and community-based long term care services were removed from the plan. The earmarked funds for Medicaid still could be passed through a budget reconciliation act but that remains to be seen. This has implications for the health and well-being of many Americans including low-income individuals 65 and older, people with disabilities, and home-based care workers.

Listen to Health Affairs‘ Senior Editors Ellen Bayer and Jessica Bylander go beyond recent headlines on President Biden’s infrastructure plan and discuss important provisions to improve home-based care.
