Conversion from Private Funds Payment to Medicaid Causes Evictions

Assisted Living Concepts, a Wisconsin-based company that, according to its Web site, operates 216 assisted-living residences with capacity for more than 9,000 residents in 20 states is being criticized for its decision to cut down on Medicaid recipients, even ones who first entered their facilities with the ability to pay from private funds.  ALC was harshly scolded in a 48-page state Public Advocate’s Office report that said when the chain began evicting tenants once they spent their money and moved to Medicaid “it caused the company’s New Jersey residents to suffer significant harm.”  The report said the Office of Ombudsman, which investigates abuse, neglect and exploitation in long-term centers, noticed a significant uptick in a variety of complaints against Assisted Living Concepts during the spring and summer of 2007.
