Bayside, a bustling neighborhood in Queens, is home to an estimated 367,000 seniors, according to the latest census data. With Mount Sinai Hospital, a U.S. News and World Report top-ranked provider of geriatric care, and other world-renowned health facilities, such as the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, close by in Manhattan, Bayside seniors can have peace of mind about accessing quality care.

For seniors who need more than just an occasional helping hand, nursing homes are often the solution. Nursing home care is fairly expensive in Bayside, at an average cost of $11,771 per month for a semiprivate room, according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey. A private room in a Bayside nursing home averages $12,927 per month. Access to 24-hour skilled nursing care and supervision, along with room and board and help with daily living activities make this the most expensive option for senior care. For those who don’t need around-the-clock access to skilled nursing services, assisted living or home health care can offer more affordable alternatives.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Bayside, NY

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.
