An Alternative Explanation for the Equality of Male and Female Unemployment Rates in the U.S. Labor Market in the Late 1980s
Given demographic trends, public policies in the future may be aimed at stimulating the availability of nursing home care in the U.S. This paper estimates how certificate of need laws, Medicaid reimbursement rates, and state corporate income tax rates affect the availability of nursing home care in markets throughout the U.S. The results indicate that the Medicaid reimbursement rate directly affects the availability of nursing home care. The findings also suggest that the state corporate tax rate inversely influences the provision of nursing care. Finally, the availability of nursing care is not affected by the presence of certificate of need laws.
