Crown Point is a city in northwest Indiana that’s home to approximately 6,600 people aged 65 and older, which means seniors make up about 19.6% of the population. With such a high density of seniors, Crown Point can offer older adults many resources to improve their quality of life in or out of a nursing home. According to Genworth Financial’s Cost of Care Survey for 2020, the average rate for a nursing home in Crown Point is $6,540 per month, which is less expensive than both the state and national averages. 

Nursing homes in Crown Point provide a high level of care for seniors who require round-the-clock medical assistance and supervision. These facilities coordinate care with skilled nurses, physicians, therapists and other medical professionals, so the cost is high compared to other types of long-term care. While nursing homes in the area are less expensive than state and national medians, home health care and assisted living are still more affordable options for seniors who don’t need all the services nursing facilities offer. 

With this guide, families can learn more about the financial aspect of nursing homes and how they compare to other types of senior care. Valuable resources are also included.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Crown Point, IN

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.
