Support bill for seniors

To the Editor:

I urge your publication to publish an editorial in support of the U.S. House of Representatives passing the Creating Access to Rehabilitation for Every Senior (CARES) Act (H.R. 3531) out of the House Ways and Means Committee and passage by the House.

Also, urge U.S. senators to introduce a companion bill to H.R. 3531 in the Senate and work to get it through committee and passed by the Senate.

This bill, which has received bipartisan support in the House, will reduce barriers to health care services for America’s seniors by eliminating the three-day inpatient hospital stay requirement for Medicare beneficiaries who are in need of skilled nursing facility (SNF) services.

To learn more about this bill go to www.congress.gov and type H.R. 3531 in the search window.
