But on the same day, a 4th Circuit ruling in a separate, but similar, case allows the federal government to give subsidies to...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

In several places, Lee Davidson refers to it as a nursing home. That is not correct. The official name is Highland Cove Senior Living and Assisted Living. When and if the residents become too ill or need services not covered here, they are transferred to a nursing home. If and when they have an accident or surgery, they go to a care center first.

In the discussion, some misleading information is being thrown around by otherwise well intentioned folks. One example was published in the Tribune (“Healthy Utah plan good for Utahns and Utah business,” June 27). In the piece, Mark Miller said 111,000 Utahns are without insurance, and thus we need to expand Medicaid eligibility to 138...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
