A Medicaid block grant funding program proposed by Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, could get reimbursement for Americans who use Medicaid nursing home benefits by an average of about $2,500 per year over 10 years.

David Cutler, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, Washington, and two colleagues have given that estimate in a commentary published on the fund website.
