Located just east of Pittsburgh, Monroeville has 27,380 residents, and nearly one out of every four of those residents is a senior 65 years of age or older. Monroeville has much to offer those older adults, including the UPMC East medical facility. Part of the University of Pittsburgh’s health care network, UPMC East is a relatively new establishment, and its focuses include surgery, stroke and cancer care. Another option is Forbes Hospital, which offers many specialties of its own. Additionally, nearby Pittsburgh contains many other medical facilities.

For semiprivate rooms, nursing homes in Monroeville charge an average monthly rate of $9,125, per the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey. That is higher than the national average of $7,756. Nursing homes tend to be the costliest senior care option in a given area; however, they also provide the most extensive care, including around-the-clock attention and supervision from licensed nurses. Not all seniors need such services, and those with more independence may find that assisted living or home health care is a more affordable and appropriate fit.

Next, this guide gives an overview of nursing home costs in Monroeville. Then, it highlights some of Monroeville’s helpful resources for seniors.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Monroeville, PA

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.
