The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
The monthly cost of senior care in Reynoldsburg varies greatly depending on the level of care needed and where it’s received. Those who need skilled, 24-hour care pay an average of $7,330 per month for a semiprivate room in a nursing home. In contrast, limited Monday through Friday care in an adult day health service setting costs just $1,560 per month.
In-home care averages $4,195 per month based on 44 service hours per week, while residential assisted living that includes room and board costs $4,170. Although these two rates seem almost on par, seniors receiving in-home care from homemakers or home health aides still have to pay food and housing expenses. When such costs are considered, the total paid can be considerably higher than the average assisted living rate.

Medicaid is the national health insurance program implemented in 1965 to provide low-income Americans with free or low-cost health care services. Today, the program covers over 65 million people coast to coast, including families with children, pregnant women, seniors and blind or disabled adults. Each state administers its own customized Medicaid program with funding assistance and oversight by the federal government.
Qualifying for Ohio Medicaid
The Department of Medicaid administers the Ohio program that serves the health care needs of one in five state residents through managed care plans. Reynoldsburg residents aged 65 or older who are American citizens or legal immigrants can qualify for Medicaid coverage if they have:
Those who meet the eligibility requirements are enrolled in the aged, blind and disabled managed care plan that provides comprehensive health services, including:
Exceptions to Medicaid’s Income and Asset Limitations
Seniors who need Medicaid to help cover the cost of long-term care but exceed the income limit may reduce their monthly earnings to the necessary threshold by establishing a Qualified Income Trust. Once income in excess of the $2,313 limit gets deposited into the trust, it’s disregarded for eligibility purposes. The funds may only be withdrawn to pay for Medicaid-approved medical and care expenses.
A married applicant who’s over the income and asset limits may be able to qualify if their spouse isn’t applying for coverage. The applicant’s income may be reduced by up to $3,160.50 and joint assets by up to $126,420 when spousal living and resource allowances are deducted. These allowances are mandated by federal laws to prevent spousal impoverishment.
Reynoldsburg residents can apply for Ohio Medicaid benefits online or call the program’s consumer hotline at (800) 324-8680 for more information or assistance with their application.
Assisted Living Waiver
The Ohio Medicaid program only covers long-term care in nursing homes as an entitlement. However, the state does offer the Assisted Living waiver program as an alternative to eligible seniors who want to stay in the community. The goal of the waiver is to minimize nursing home admissions and reduce the high cost of care while allowing seniors to enjoy greater independence and a better quality of life. Applicants for the ALW must:
Approved applicants receive a range of support services including:

Long-Term Care Insurance
Seniors who want to limit their cost of future care may consider buying long-term care insurance. Available through a number of insurance companies, this type of policy pays a set amount of daily or monthly benefits for a specific or unlimited period of time. LTC policies typically have an elimination or deductible period before benefits kick in, and they offer a range of care options and other benefits, such as inflation protection. The state of Ohio has partnered with LTC insurers to provide coverage that can help seniors protect their assets if Medicaid coverage is needed. Applicants’ age, health status and the policy’s benefit period and options are what determine the cost of LTC insurance.
To learn more about LTC insurance and state partnership policies, Reynoldsburg seniors can contact the Ohio Department of Insurance at (800) 686-1578.

Reynoldsburg seniors and disabled adults eligible for Social Security, Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income benefits may qualify for monthly top-up payments from the Ohio Residential State Supplementation program. This extra cash benefit is to help recipients pay for room and board, personal care and supervision services in assisted living facilities.
