Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Cherokee County

Medicaid in Georgia

Throughout the U.S., Medicaid provides low-income individuals and families with access to a wide range of health care, including medical treatment, dental care and prescription medication. In Georgia, Medicaid is funded by the state with the support of the federal government. Primarily, its accessed by families with children, pregnant women and senior citizens. 

While Georgia’s standard state plan doesn’t cover the cost of long-term care, unless it’s received in a nursing home, the Georgia Community Care Services Program Medical Waiver does provide care and support services to frail elderly individuals who choose to continue living in their home or in an assisted living facility. The waiver was created to decrease expenses for Georgia’s Medicaid system by reducing the number of seniors accessing nursing home care in the state. It does so by providing the services seniors require to delay or avoid further institutionalization. Enrollment for this waiver is capped at 19,000 participants, which means that it’s likely seniors will have to be placed on a waiting list before being granted assistance. 

To qualify for Medicaid programs in Georgia as a senior, applicants must be 65 years of age or older and undergo a personal care assessment to determine their level of need. Financially, an individual must have a monthly income of $2,313 or less ($4,626 couple) and may not have countable assets greater than $2,000 ($3,000 couple). Exempt assets include the applicant’s home, household furnishings, personal belongings and a single vehicle. 

To apply for Medicaid or inquire about waiting list times for the CCSP waiver, seniors can call (877) 423-4746. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplement

Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income can receive an additional cash benefit from Georgia’s Optional State Supplement program. This benefit is available to low-income seniors or disabled individuals who receive long term care, whether at home or in a facility. The Optional State Supplement is funded by the state of Georgia with assistance from the federal government. 

To qualify for this payment, seniors must be eligible for Medicaid and receive the federal Supplemental Security Income benefit. To apply, seniors can call the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213.

Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)

The non-Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services program is provided by the Georgia Department of Human Services – Division of Aging with the assistance of the 12 Area Agencies on Aging. Although the HCBS program doesn’t directly pay for assisted living costs, it does help seniors to reduce their out of pocket expenses by providing a variety of services that aren’t covered by Medicaid. Some of the services this program provides include physical fitness classes, transportation services, support groups, nurse visits and nutritional counseling. 

This program is available to seniors aged 60 and above and has no financial limitations. Applicants are accepted on a case-by-case basis and preference is given to those with the lowest income. To apply, seniors can call the Atlanta Regional Commission Aging Division at (404) 463-3333.

Elderlife Bridge Loan

The company offers bridge loans at flexible terms and low monthly payments. Upon approval, funds are issued directly to the senior’s care facility and are to be repaid in full by the senior and/or cosigners.

Although eligibility depends on credit and income, seniors can include up to six cosigners on their application to increase their chances of approval. Applications can be submitted online and more information can be obtained by calling (888) 228-4500.
