Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Norman, 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.

Free Resources for Seniors in Norman, OK

Seniors in Norman have access to many resources that can help them continue to live independently in their homes for as long as possible and others that can help them gain easier access to nursing home services. The following provides some examples of those resources.

ResourceContactService
VA Aid and Attendance Benefit and Housebound Allowance(800) 827-1000The VA Aid and Attendance benefit is an additional monthly payment to the VA pension. It’s to help with costs for U.S. military veterans and their spouses living in nursing homes. Eligible vets who are housebound can apply for the Housebound Allowance to contribute towards their home care costs. There is no need to repay either benefit. To check eligibility, seniors can use the free online tool provided by VeteranAid.org. 
Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)(866) 411-1877The federally funded program assists Norman residents on low incomes struggling to meet their energy costs. It comes in two forms: a one-off annual payment towards the senior’s primary fuel source to help with payments during the winter months and a crisis payment between March and May for those facing disconnection from their primary energy supplier.
Meals on Wheels of Norman, OK(405) 321-7272Working in partnership with the Norman Regional Health System, Meals on Wheels delivers nutritious meals to homebound seniors throughout the city. The meals arrive in containers that can be heated in a microwave oven. The program requires a payment per meal, using a sliding scale to determine the figure. Costs take into account seniors’ total monthly incomes and monthly living expenses.
State Health Insurance Program (SHIP)(800) 763-2828The program’s counselors assist seniors who are Medicare beneficiaries. The counselors are independent. They don’t get a commission, so the information they provide about private health insurance programs is unbiased. Additionally, they can assist low-income seniors who may be eligible for Medicaid and help them enroll. In some cases, they may be able to help seniors access programs that can reduce the costs of certain medications.
Transportation(405) 321-3200Aging Services provides a limited transportation service to adults aged 60 and over to take them to medical appointments, perform errands and go shopping. The free service operates every 30 minutes Mondays to Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Although there is a suggested donation, seniors who cannot afford to pay are not refused.
