Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in McAllen, TX

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 McAllen, TX

In the following list, we describe a few programs and services that may help seniors find a nursing home, obtain financial assistance for their care or delay transitioning to a nursing home altogether by receiving the care and assistance they need at home.

Meals On Wheels

(956) 213-9400Meals On Wheels is a national program striving to end hunger in the country's aging population. Volunteers with the local Meals On Wheels provider, Amigos Del Valle, deliver hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors throughout the week. In addition to helping older adults avoid malnutrition, every delivery provides a bit of socialization and a wellness checkup. The service is free to seniors who meet income guidelines, but small donations are appreciated. 

Long-Term Care Ombudsman

(800) 252-2412The Long-Term Care Ombudsman provides several free and confidential services to help the residents of McAllen's nursing homes and assisted living facilities live their best lives. Current nursing home residents and their families can file complaints about a facility's quality of care and administrative decisions that negatively affect quality of life. When the Ombudsman investigates, they seek a satisfactory resolution that protects the rights and best interests of residents. Seniors can also reach out to the Ombudsman for assistance choosing a nursing facility and finding programs that may help them pay for it.
Health & Human Services Commission

(956) 787-3131The Department of Health & Human Services is responsible for processing Medicaid applications. Workers at HHSC can advise seniors on their eligibility to receive government-subsidized long-term care services, check the status of applications and answer coverage questions. They can also check if seniors might qualify for food assistance and other helpful programs.

Area Agency on Aging

(956) 682-3481At the Area Agency on Aging, seniors can learn about and apply for government and nonprofit programs that could help them stay healthy while living at home. The AAA works closely with the local Aging & Disability Resource Center, which helps manage several assistance programs, reviews nursing homes' ratings and maintains a directory of providers of low-cost home care and other services.
