Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Longmont, Colorado

Many seniors and their families use some form of financial assistance to help them pay for nursing care. The main options available are Medicare, Medicaid, and veterans benefits. These programs can be complicated, especially when it comes to benefit terms. Below, we give a brief overview of how these programs may be used towards paying for skilled nursing care.

  • Medicare: Medicare will typically cover all skilled nursing costs for the first 20 days of one’s stay in a nursing home and a portion of the costs until day 100. After 100 days in a skilled nursing facility, Medicare will not cover any part of the cost of the stay. While this is adequate when short-term care is needed, those in need of long-term care will need to either pay out-of-pocket or use another source of financial assistance.
  • Medicaid: Medicaid covers most of the costs of living in a skilled nursing facility for those who qualify. Care, room, and board are covered with no time limit, but residents may be charged for extras like specially prepared food or cosmetic services. Medicaid eligibility standards are strict and complex, so not all seniors are eligible for Medicaid benefits.
  • Veterans Benefits: Veterans receiving a VA pension may also be eligible for the Aid and Attendance benefit administered by the VA. Aid and Attendance is a monthly allowance that beneficiaries may use to pay for their long-term care, including skilled nursing care.

If these options aren’t available to you, check if your loved one has long-term care insurance or contact your Area Agency on Aging to ask about any local financial assistance programs for seniors.

Boulder County Area Agency on Aging(303) 441-3570The BCAAA manages a variety of programs that promote healthy aging, including dedicated services for veterans and older members of the LGBT community. Its community living programs provide a range of services to help seniors remain in their homes, instead of transitioning into a long-term care facility. Assistance with chores, homemaker services, legal help and transportation are some of the services available through the BCAAA and its partner organizations.  
Long Term Care Ombudsman Program(303) 441-1173The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program helps seniors find long-term care facilities that meet their needs, and it advocates for their rights when they become residents. This free program emphasizes confidentiality between seniors and its volunteers, but with permission, an ombudsman will step in to investigate seniors’ concerns about a nursing facility’s quality of care and other complaints. 
Boulder County Human Services Department(303) 441-1000Through the county’s Human Services Department, seniors can apply for Health First Colorado, the state’s Medicaid program, which can help low-income seniors pay for nursing home care.

Meals on Wheels(303) 772-0540Seniors enrolled in the Meals on Wheels program receive hot, nutritionally well-balanced meals delivered to their homes, enabling older adults with limited mobility to maintain their health and cut down on food expenses. Applicants must be aged 60 or older, and meals are priced on a sliding scale dependent on income.
