On March 11, 2021, President Joe Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, which included $250 million allocated Medicare and Medicaid funding for the implementation of nursing home strike teams. AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine sent a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services on June 11, 2021, urging them “to take immediate action to make these funds available to states so that facilities can implement strike teams and help our nation’s vulnerable patients and residents in these facilities”, as the states still do not have access to these funds.
