Medicaid is a state funded program that provides financial coverage for Long Term Custodial Care. It is different from Medicare, as Medicare does not pay for Long Term Care. Medicare and Medicaid work together to cover the medical expenses of an individual for as long as those services are deemed necessary.
• Medical costs including co-pays
• Room and board for a Nursing Home or Skilled Nursing Rehabilitation Center
• Cost of care up to $1,400 in an Assisted Living Facility
• Home Health Aide up to 40 hours a week at home
• Costs for an Adult Day Care Center
• Skilled Nursing Care and Rehabilitation or “Nursing Homes” Costs around $11,000/month. Medicaid Beneficiaries’ maximum payment or patient responsibility to the skilled nursing facility is their income. The beneficiary is able to keep $130 for their personal needs.
• Assisted Living Facilities Costs between $1,800-$6,000 per month depending on the facility. Medicaid Covers up to $1,400 to the Assisted Living Facility to cover the cost of care needs. The client is still responsible for the Room and Board in an Assisted Living Facility.
• Home Based Services Costs approximately $20/hour for Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Medicaid covers up to 40 hours a week in the home.
Mistakes can be costly when navigating in this unfamiliar territory of applying for Medicaid Long Term Care.
The average Long-Term Care housing for custodial care costs over $100,000 per year and these costs are not covered by Medicare or other healthcare insurances. The Medicaid application process can be a slow and grueling undertaking dragging on for months before receiving an approval and you could end up with a partial approval or even a complete denial. These outcomes could potentially cost you thousands of dollars and If you are denied then you would be responsible to pay the nursing home privately for those lost months of coverage while you were residing in the healthcare facility.
