Broken Arrow is just outside of Tulsa and has a population of 108,496. Seniors 65 years of age and older, who comprise 14.6% of those residents, can benefit from the area’s relatively low cost of living. They also have access to medical facilities such as St. John Broken Arrow and Cornerstone Specialty Hospitals Broken Arrow, which focuses on patients with complex medical situations. Semiprivate rooms in nursing homes cost an average of $5,323 per month in Broken Arrow, which is a favorable rate compared to the national average of $7,756, according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey.

Designed for residents who need frequent supervision and care, nursing homes are on the high end of the price spectrum of senior living options. Nursing homes usually have aides and skilled nursing services available day and night. If such high levels of care are not necessary, the services provided by assisted living or home health care may be a better and less expensive fit.

The rest of this guide contains an assessment of the costs of different senior living arrangements as well as a list of certain senior-focused resources available in Broken Arrow.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Broken Arrow, OK

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.
