The Senate passed a bill Thursday that would recalculate reimbursements for nursing homes. Lindsay Shively has the story.
Senate Majority Leader Mike Gibbons sponsored the bill to annually recalculate reimbursements to nursing homes. The bill passed without opposition but only after Gibbons responded to questions. Columbia Sen. Ken Jacob says he is concerned about the effects this bill could have on in-home health care.
Gibbons reached a compromise with opponents by saying he will pursue these issues further when presenting the bill to the House. From the state Capitol, I'm Lindsay Shively.
