Forecast of the National Health Expenditure Accounts of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) indicated that 145.6 billion U.S. dollars (USD) will be paid to continuing-care retirement communities and skilled-nursing facilities in 2011. It also notes sale-leaseback deals including a 15-million-USD purchase by LTC Properties.
