Medicaid Benefits Cuts Impact Thousands in N.C.

Changes to state Medicaid rules that will cut benefits to group home residents across the state will also affect between 3,000 and 4,000 people with Alzheimer's disease who live in adult care facilities, sources close to state proceedings told WRAL News Wednesday.
The federal government is pulling 40 percent of its funding out of adult care facilities under new Medicaid rules that aim to ensure the same personal care eligibility standards exist for people no matter where they live, instead of having rules that may steer people toward institutional care.
