Get Help Paying for Your Stay at Plymouth Terrace Senior Living
Are you worried about how you’re going to afford your stay at Plymouth Terrace Senior Living?
Having a hard time finding financial assistance for your parents?
How much will their insurance cover?
It’s so important to find quality, affordable care for your loved one where they feel comfortable. Senior living services can be expensive, but there are government programs out there that will help pay the costs, including:
1. Medicare for short term rehab stays
3. Veterans aid
According to A Place for Mom, “Each state has its own guidelines, so you’ll need to contact a State Assistance office for more details:
- Call 1-800-MEDICARE: www.medicare.gov
- Visit the Medicare and Medicaid Services website www.cms.hhs.gov
You may also want to speak with an elder law attorney who can help guide you through the nuances of a successful Medicaid application.”
What Happens If I Can't Pay?
Once you find a home for assisted living or independent living you can afford, it is important to ensure you can afford to stay there in the future if your resources run out. Always ask to see the care company's policy in writing, so you know what will happen if your money runs out.
Senior living homes must notify you and your family at least 30 days before you’re discharged. They’ll also create a report summarizing you or your loved one’s current mental and physical health status and a post-discharge plan of care.
According to federal law, you have the right to file a hardship waiver with your state's Department of Health and Human Services. A hardship waiver must document how the move would endanger your health or your access to shelter and food. While a federal hardship waiver does not apply to assisted living facilities, you can still reach out to government agencies, such as your Area Agency on Aging or your local long-term care ombudsman, which every state is required to have under the Federal Older Americans Act.
