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.

The following resources support Monroeville’s older population. Specific programs serve different purposes; for instance, some are meant to make living at home easier, healthier and more dignified for seniors. Others make it easier to transition into and live in long-term care facilities.

ResourceContactService
Alleghany County Area Agency on Aging(412) 350-5460
The Alleghany County AAA works with seniors 60 years of age and up. It combines its efforts with those of APPRISE (covered below) and the Pennsylvania Health Law Project to offer health insurance counseling and assistance. The AAA also provides home-delivered meals and oversees the Service Coordination Program, which serves residents who require high levels of care but wish to remain at home.
APPRISE(800) 783-7067
The APPRISE program’s counselors help Medicare beneficiaries understand their options and access benefits. APPRISE can point seniors toward appropriate financial assistance programs. Help with Medicare appeals is also available, as is information on prescription drug coverage, Medigap options and Medicare Advantage. To get started, Monroeville residents can call the helpline number at left or contact their AAA.
Pennsylvania’s Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program(717) 783-8975
The LTC Ombudsman Program’s representatives are advocates for residents of long-term care facilities, including nursing homes. They make residents aware of their federally and state-protected rights, and they also work to ensure that clients are receiving the proper care. Additionally, the program has an initiative called PEERs, in which trained long-term care residents help their neighbors within their facilities.
Allegheny Home Improvement Loan Program(412) 350-6337
The AHILP makes low-interest loans available for eligible applicants who own single-family dwellings and need to make certain repairs, including fixes to electrical, plumbing and roofing systems. Funds can also go toward fixing HVAC components and water and sewer connections. A pre-tax income limit applies and is based on household size. In certain cases, grants may also be available for code repairs, sidewalk work, mitigating lead hazards and making accessibility improvements.
Allegheny County Veterans’ Services(412) 621-4357The ACVS may be of use to seniors who served in the military. Veterans are often eligible for state, local and federal benefits. Examples of benefits include health care and emergency assistance. The ACVS office can help seniors learn about eligibility requirements and apply for those benefits. ACVS personnel also advocate on behalf of veterans and their families.
