Repeal of Affordable Care Act Would Result in $29.8 Million in Cuts for 26 Nursing Homes in 21st Congressional District

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that an analysis by the New York State Department of Health shows that 26 nursing homes in the 21st Congressional District would lose $29.8 million in funding if the Ryan/Collins/Faso healthcare repeal is passed, crippling their ability to provide critical services for seniors, hurting New York’s most vulnerable citizens and jeopardizing hundreds of jobs across the district.

The massive cuts in funding to nursing homes in Congresswoman Stefanik's District underscore the devastating impact the combination of the Collins/Faso Amendment and Paul Ryan health care replacement plan will have on New Yorkers across the state. The following nursing homes in the 21st District would be severely impacted with enormous cuts in their funding:

  • Samaritan Keep Nursing Home Inc - $2,560,946 in cuts
  • Saratoga Center for Rehab and Skilled Nursing Care - $2,207,830 in cuts
  • Fulton Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare - $1,793,760 in cuts
  • Riverledge Health Care and Rehabilitation Center - $1,792,599 in cuts
  • Fort Hudson Nursing Center Inc - $1,765,671 in cuts

"This reckless legislation slashes funding from nursing homes and facilities that provide care to seniors, jeopardizing the lives of our most vulnerable New Yorkers,” Governor Cuomo said. "These devastating cuts will cripple health care services in communities across New York, with $29.8 million in cuts to nursing homes in the 21st District alone. I urge New Yorkers to call their member of Congress and demand that they vote 'no' on this unconscionable legislation."

Congressmen Chris Collins and John Faso have introduced an amendment to the American Health Care Act that would ban federal reimbursement for state Medicaid funds for local governments outside of New York City, cutting Medicaid for these local governments by $2.3 billion. When added to the $4.6 billion cost of the ACHA over the next four years, the total cost to the State would rise to $6.9 billion. Across New York, 2.7 million New Yorkers would face substantial loss in their current health care coverage, while enormous cuts in funding will threaten the quality and availability of care that New Yorkers need and deserve.
