Muskogee is a small city located on the Arkansas River in Oklahoma, best known for being the first Oklahoma city with a port that offered access to the Gulf of Mexico. It has a population of just 37,113, of which 15.5% are aged 65 or older. Seniors living in Muskogee can take advantage of a number of health care facilities, including the highly rated St Francis Hospital Muskogee and the Cornerstone Hospital of Oklahoma-Muskogee. Nursing home facilities in Muskogee charge relatively low fees, with a semiprivate room costing $5,323, compared to the national average of $7,756 per month.

Nursing homes offer seniors 24-hour skilled nursing care, supervision, and monitoring, making them a good choice for people who have medical conditions that prevent them from living independently. The skilled nature of the care delivered means fees are higher for nursing homes than other types of senior care. Home health care or assisted living could be a more financially viable option for seniors who are generally mobile and require only limited supervision.

This guide looks at the cost of different senior care options in Muskogee. It also lists some resources to help local seniors access the care they need.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Muskogee, Oklahoma

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.
