McKinney is a suburb of Dallas, Texas, situated north of the city center. It’s a family-friendly area, with world-class health care, including Baylor, Scott, & White Hospital. About 10% of McKinney’s population of 199,000 are seniors aged 65 and older, an age group who may benefit from the area’s moderate nursing home costs. McKinney seniors can expect to pay an average of $5,171 per month, which is significantly lower than the national average of $7,756, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey 2020

Nursing homes provide 24-hour supervision and medical care for people unable to care for themselves or manage their medical conditions at home. These long-term care facilities provide medical treatment as needed from licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants, plus help with mobility, personal grooming, eating and continence care from trained attendants. Because of these extra services, nursing homes have higher monthly costs than other kinds of elder care. Individuals who don’t require 24-7 medical care may find that home health care or assisted living accommodations are a better fit.

This guide explores the cost of senior care in McKinney in more detail. It also lists local resources that may help seniors and their families.

Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care in Mckinney, Texas

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.
