Webinar Thursday - Increase Scrutiny of Nursing Home Finances
Despite receiving tens of billions of dollars each year in Medicare and Medicaid dollars, there is little accountability for how nursing homes spend taxpayer dollars. Join Consumer Voice and Ernie Tosh, nationally recognized expert on nursing home finances, Thursday, April 6 at 2:00pm ET as we discuss the new Consumer Voice report, “Where do the Billions of Dollars Go? A Look at Nursing Home Related Party Transactions.” The report takes an in-depth look at how nursing home owners and operators funnel billions of dollars through companies they own with little to no accountability for how that money is used each year. In addition, we will offer concrete solutions to address this industry-wide problem to ensure public dollars are going toward resident care.
