According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, at $3,339, assisted living in Oklahoma City is roughly the same as the state average of $3,325 and moderately less expensive than the national average of $4,000. Aside from Enid ($2,860), which has a much smaller population, assisted living in other cities such as Tulsa ($3,448) and Lawton ($3,238) is priced similarly to Oklahoma City.
The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Several factors determine the cost of senior care, including location, degree of care needed and number of direct service hours. In Oklahoma City, the cost for nursing home care is 30 percent higher than that of either assisted living or home care. Compared to assisted living, home care is more expensive; homemaker services are $100 more per month, and home health aides are $700 more. This in-home care, unlike residential senior care such as assisted living, does not include the other costs associated with staying at home, such as rent or mortgage, home maintenance, utilities and food.

Created in 1968, Medicaid is a jointly funded state and federal health care insurance program for low-income Americans. Called SoonerCare in Oklahoma, it is administered by the state’s Department of Human Services. While Soonercare covers many of the costs associated with long-term care, other options, including assisted living, are available through the state’s home and community-based waivers. These are explained in more detail below.
Medicaid is available to Oklahoma residents and U.S. citizens who have annual incomes of $26,244 or less and total assets of $2,000 or less. Medicaid counts all possible forms of income, and these include but are not limited to pensions, wages, Social Security Insurance, stock dividends and IRA withdrawals.
Countable assets consist of bank accounts, stocks, bonds, investments, cash and real estate, aside from a primary residence occupied by either the applicant or spouse. Further exemptions include burial costs, an automobile, personal belongings and household furniture.
Individuals whose incomes exceed the limitations may be eligible to establish a Qualified Income Trust. According to the American Council on Aging, strict rules determine the governing of Income Only Trusts. Funds can only be spent on expenses related to long-term care, and any remaining balance after the recipient’s passing must be paid to the state of Oklahoma.

ADvantage Waiver Program
One of two home and community-based waivers available for seniors in Oklahoma City, the ADvantage Waiver Program serves those who qualify for SoonerCare, are 65 or older and are determined to be disabled by the Social Security Administration. Further, the nursing staff of the Aging Services Division must determine that applicants need a nursing facility level of care.
Recipients of the waiver are entitled to many services that enable them to live in their home or a family member’s home. These services include skilled nursing, therapies, adult day care, home-delivered meals and environmental modifications. Those who wish to apply or learn more should call the Oklahoma Health Care Authority at (405) 522-7300.
Medically Fragile Waiver
Seniors under 65 who are frail and need a skilled nursing level of care may be eligible for Oklahoma’s Medically Fragile Waiver. Included services are very similar to those provided under the ADvantage Waiver, including meals, environmental modifications and skilled nursing, and applicants must also be eligible for Medicaid. Interested individuals can apply online or receive assistance by calling (888) 287-2443 or emailing [email protected]

Veterans Aid and Attendance and Housebound Benefits
Veterans who need assistance with activities of daily living or who are housebound may be eligible for Aid and Attendance and Housebound Benefits. These are VVA pension top-ups, and the funds may be used at the recipient’s discretion to pay for care in the setting of their choice. Those seeking Aid and Attendance benefits must require assistance with some or all of these ADL: bathing, dressing, grooming, eating or coping with the hazards of day-to-day living.
Housebound benefits are available to those who, aside from any prescribed treatment for their condition, are bedridden. Learn more at your local Mobile Veterans Administration Office at (251) 574-8578 or by calling the VA Pension Center serving the Oklahoma City area at (608) 758-9300.
