Oklahoma City is home to 328,000 residents, 16.5% of whom are 65 years and over. The city’s comfortable climate comes from its warm summers, mild winters and precipitation levels slightly below the national average. It has an above-average number of Medicare-registered physicians and 25 hospitals in and around the city limits, including the Oklahoma Heart Hospital and the Bone and Joint Hospital at St. Anthony, which handles simple and complex orthopedic surgeries. The Genworth Cost of Care Survey for 2020 shows that Oklahoma City’s nursing home costs are well below the national average and slightly below the state average.

Nursing homes are a practical solution for seniors who lack the ability to look after themselves without constant supervision and management of their medical needs. Nursing home facilities include skilled staff and nurses who care for seniors’ everyday requirements, from helping them dress and bathe to administering medication. Consequently, nursing home fees tend to be higher than assisted living and home health care services.

This guide provides more detail on care services for seniors, including local resources that can enhance their quality of life.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Family members who are unsure if a nursing home is the best solution for their loved ones may want to consider comparing the benefits and costs of alternative forms of care. These tend to be less expensive because they offer lower levels of care for seniors who are capable of maintaining independent or semi-independent lives. The least expensive option is adult day health care, which typically costs in the region of $1,517, followed by assisted living at $3,900 monthly, while home care averages $4,385, with an additional $48 per month for seniors who need help with their medication.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Oklahoma City, 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.
