Why the Trump Administration Needs a Bigger Hospital for Patients With Mental Illness
Health care providers have been lobbying for a bigger hospital for patients with mental illness for years.
They want a larger facility in states like California, Texas, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, which have all seen huge jumps in suicides.
However, they have not gotten a clear answer from the Trump administration.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the agency that runs the system and the President’s budget proposal does not include a proposal to increase the size of the existing hospital in the United States.
As such, we’re going to see more and more hospitals closing, more and longer stay, according to a new report from Kaiser Health News.
The report comes after the Trump transition team announced plans to expand the number of psychiatric beds at state psychiatric hospitals, which is in addition to the number in the hospitals currently serving the population.
The new proposals also expand a federal pilot program to provide psychiatric care at private hospitals in California, which would bring more people into the system.
The expansion would be similar to one that was started in New York in 2015 and has been extended into 2016.
The pilot program has had some positive results.
It has reduced suicides, the report found, and its results have been replicated in other studies.
However it also has a few concerns.
The most recent data, for example, shows that suicides have increased in the last year in the two states with the most active pilot programs, with California seeing a 24 percent increase.
The authors of the new report, from the University of California, San Diego, and Kaiser Health, argue that the changes in the pilot program are likely to result in even more patients who are suicidal, and they suggest that states and federal agencies should work together to ensure that this does not happen.
“These findings raise important questions about the potential effects of the expansion,” they write.
“The expansion would increase the number and number of people with mental illnesses in the U.S. population, potentially leading to additional costs to the system as a whole, as well as to individuals.”
The report does note that it is possible that mental illness will rise in the coming years, but there is no definitive evidence that this will be a major issue in the next decade.
In fact, the authors of this report are skeptical about the possibility that the rise in suicides will lead to a major increase in the number, length, and severity of the crisis.
“There is no evidence that increased use of psychiatric facilities in the future will have a significant impact on suicide rates,” the authors wrote.
The Trump administration has been trying to increase access to psychiatric care for a while, with the Affordable Care Act.
However that bill was struck down in the Supreme Court, and Congress was unable to pass a new version of the law.
Instead, President Trump’s administration has tried to take some of the best practices of the Affordable Healthcare Act, and he has proposed a massive increase in Medicaid funding for mental health services, and the implementation of an expansion of the psychiatric hospital pilot program.
“Medicaid expansion is critical for mental illness in the US,” the President wrote in his budget proposal for the 2017 fiscal year.
“It provides state and local governments with critical financial resources to assist in the care of the mentally ill.”
This would include money for hospitals, clinics, and other treatment facilities, and it would provide mental health workers with increased access to the mental health system.
“States and their elected leaders should be working with federal agencies to increase their ability to access mental health care and help reduce the number who are living with mental health disorders,” the report says.
“This can be accomplished through an expanded mental health hospital pilot.”
However, this will not come cheap.
The budget proposal calls for an additional $8 billion in funding for state and federal mental health programs by 2020.
However in the same budget proposal, the administration said it will be making a “significant investment” in mental health in 2020, which it has already committed to.
The increase in funding would be a welcome move, especially given that the overall suicide rate has increased in many states.
However as the report notes, there are some drawbacks.
There is no clear evidence that the expansion would lead to more suicides.
Additionally, the cost of providing psychiatric care in the long term could be a significant barrier to accessing it for many people.
This would have negative consequences on many people who are currently living with psychiatric illness.
“Mental health care is expensive,” the study concludes.
“To address the financial barriers to access to mental health and the quality of care provided, the Trump health plan will not provide additional funds for mental healthcare in the short term.”
They also point out that the increase in money would not address the fact that mental health treatment has been shown to improve people’s overall quality of life, but only improve the quality and effectiveness of their care.
They also note that the government is already paying a significant share of mental health costs, and that the
