Boca Raton is a city on the east coast of Florida and it was named one of the top 10 southern cities to retire in by CNBC. The city has a population of 99,805, and about 26.8% of residents are aged 65 and older. Seniors living in Boca Raton have access to excellent medical services at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. This teaching hospital was rated as high performing in four adult procedures by USN ratings

Nursing home care offers full-time care and medical assistance to frail and chronically ill seniors. This type of care is generally on the expensive side, and seniors who don’t require such a high level of care may want to look at alternative options such as assisted living and home care services. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, the average monthly cost of nursing home care in Boca Raton is $9,095 for a semiprivate room. This is about $1,300 more per month than the national average.

Note: Data for Boca Raton was unavailable, so data for the nearest city, Miami, was used instead.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Boca Raton, Florida

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.
