NC House OKs financial help for group homes

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The North Carolina House has approved quickly a plan to ensure group home operators get financial help after Medicaid payments changed for some of residents, but the Senate doesn't seem to be in a hurry to follow suit and get the bill to Gov. Pat McCrory.

 

The House approved unanimously Thursday a bill making clear health officials should provide assistance to group homes whose occupants don't qualify for personal care services from Medicaid starting Jan. 1. Outgoing Gov. Beverly Perdue said a 2012 law setting aside $40 million could only help adult care home residents.

 

The cleanup bill now heads to the Senate, where Sen. Ralph Hise of Spruce Pine says there's no need to move rapidly because no one has touched the $40 million while residents appeal rulings.
