Assisted Living Costs in Tampa

The Genworth 2018 Cost of Care study indicates that the average monthly cost of assisted living in Tampa is below both the national average ($4,000) and the state average ($3,500). When compared with Jacksonville ($4,425), the largest city in the state, Tampa’s assisted living costs are more than $1,000 lower. The city’s assisted living costs are similar to other major cities in Florida such as Miami ($3,350) and Orlando ($3,275).

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart

  • Tampa: $3,250
  • National average: $4,000
  • State average: $3,500
  • Jacksonville: $4,425
  • Miami: $3,350
  • Orlando: $3,275
  • Palm Bay: $3,750
  • Panama: $4,200
  • Sebring: $3,038

Care Cost Comparison

The type of care required is the biggest factor influencing the average cost of long term care, and this is especially true in Tampa. The cost of nursing home care in the city is more than $5,000 higher than that of assisted living. When compared to home care services, assisted living is substantially less as well. When considering home care as an option, it’s important to also account for additional expenses such as rent and general upkeep, which add a great deal to the monthly budget and can result in a cost that’s much higher than assisted living, which typically includes room-and-board costs.

Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart

  • Assisted living: $3,250
  • Homemaker services: $3,718
  • Home health aide: $4,096
  • Adult day health: $1,907
  • Nursing home care (semiprivate room): $8,319

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Tampa

Medicaid in Florida

The Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program in Florida is available to seniors living in assisted living and other long-term care facilities in Tampa and throughout the state. The program provides financial assistance with the cost of assisted living and other care services to eligible seniors as well as other services that may include transportation, physical therapy, occupational therapy or case management, depending on the specific needs of the senior.

In order to be eligible for this program, seniors must be 65 years of age or older and complete a comprehensive care assessment to determine their need for long-term care. Financial eligibility requirements are in place for this program as well. Seniors must not have an annual income that exceeds $16,040 when applying as an individual, while for couples, income must not exceed $21,599. There is usually a waiting list for this program because it accepts a limited number of participants each year. Seniors can learn more about adding their names to the waiting list and the application process by calling 1-800-96-ELDER.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

The Florida Department of Elder Affairs provides the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. It offers alternative care to seniors who require a nursing level of care but prefer to continue living in their home or within an assisted living community. The program doesn’t provide seniors with cash benefits but instead offers subsidies on medical and social services, including daily nurse or caregiver visits, medical and dental care, transportation services and long-term care.

Applicants to PACE must complete a comprehensive care assessment and be 55 years of age or older. They must also be able to safely live in their community and meet the financial requirements of the state Medicaid plan. To find a PACE provider in Tampa, seniors can call 1-855-435-7223.

Optional State Supplement

Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income can apply for an optional state supplement if additional financial assistance is required to pay for the cost of room and board in an assisted living facility. The applicant’s current income and budget determine the benefit amount, which has a maximum payout of $78.40 per month.

In order to be eligible for the OSS, seniors must have an income that doesn’t exceed $849.40 per month and may not possess more than $2,000 value in assets. Seniors can apply for the supplement by contacting ACCESS Florida at 1-866-762-2237.

Elderlife Bridge Loan

Seniors who aren’t eligible for government assistance may be able to apply for an elder bridge loan from Elderlife Financial Services. These loans are for seniors living in approved assisted living or long-term care facilities and are paid directly to the facility where the senior resides. Loans are paid back in monthly installments and have low interest rates and flexible terms.

Eligibility depends on the senior’s credit history and income, but for those who are unable to afford the monthly payments on their own, Elderlife Financial Services allows applicants to include up to six cosigners on their application, which may also improve the likelihood of approval.

Long-Term Care Insurance

Some seniors may have purchased a long-term care insurance policy prior to making the decision to move to an assisted living facility. Those who are covered are generally subject to an annual deductible, after which their policy covers the cost of care.

Eligibility and premiums vary depending on the provider, the plan and the amount of coverage, but typically a policy must be purchased before the need for long-term care exists.
