Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Quincy, IL

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.

Catholic Charities Meals on Wheels(217) 422-6611The Catholic Charities Meals on Wheels program delivers hot and nutritious meals to homebound seniors in Quincy.  All meals provided are heart-healthy and diabetic-safe. To be eligible for the program, seniors must be aged 60 and over and no longer able to prepare a meal on their own or have regular assistance to prepare meals. A team of volunteers delivers one meal daily from Monday to Friday. The volunteers check in on the seniors to make sure that all is well, because the Meals on Wheels volunteers are the only people some seniors see each day. The meals are charged on a sliding scale, and no senior is turned away if they cannot afford to pay. Special diets can be accommodated.
Senior Citizen Transportation(217) 224- 3535Quincy Transit Lines offers a door-to-door transport service for seniors aged 60 and over as well as a number of regular bus routes. A wheelchair-friendly bus is used for the door-to-door service, and drivers are able to provide minimal assistance if required. There are no restrictions on the places seniors can visit using the system, enabling them to get to medical appointments or grocery stores. A small donation is charged for each ride, but the service is still available to those who cannot afford to contribute. Rides must be booked at least 24 hours in advance.
Illinois Senior Health Insurance Program1-800-252-8966The Illinois Department on Aging funds the Senior Health Insurance Information Program. This program provides free statewide health insurance counseling for seniors and their caregivers. Counselors assist seniors by explaining state insurance plan options, finding the best option for their needs and helping them apply for insurance plans. The agency helps seniors reduce their medical costs and receive all benefits they are eligible for. In addition, the counselors can explain the financial assistance available to seniors moving to nursing home care facilities.
