The Sequestration’s impact on aging services are as follows:
• A 2% cut to Medicare reimbursement for health care providers. These cuts will amount to an $11 billion cut in Medicare spending. Medicaid is exempt from the cuts.
• A 5.1% cut in Section 202 housing funding, amounting to $18 million.
• A 5.1% cut, amounting to $86.7 million, to the Administration on Aging, which manages Older Americans Act programs.
