Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
In Nashville, the biggest factor influencing the cost of senior care is the type of care that a senior needs. Adult day health care, the most affordable type of care in the city, costs about one-third the price of assisted living care. Homemaker services ($3,621) and home health aides ($3,804) are also significantly less expensive than assisted living care. However, seniors who choose these in-home care options should also consider the other costs associated with remaining in their homes, such as utilities. The most expensive type of senior care in Nashville, nursing home care, costs more than $2,000 more per month than assisted living care.

Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance program that provides health care benefits to eligible people, such as children, pregnant women and senior citizens. Each state operates its own Medicaid program. TennCare, Tennessee’s Medicaid program, covers a variety of health care services, such as doctor visits, home health services, medical supplies, hospital visits and physical therapy.
Seniors may qualify for coverage through TennCare if they meet the program’s residency, citizenship and financial requirements. They must be U.S. citizens or qualified aliens who live in Tennessee. In addition, they must have a low or very low income. In Tennessee, the Medicaid income limit for a single senior is $16,040 per year before taxes. For couples, the income limit is $21,599. Seniors accepted into the TennCare program may need to regularly verify eligibility.

CHOICES in Long-Term Services and Supports Program
Seniors may be eligible to receive assistance from the CHOICES in Long-Term Services and Supports program. This Medicaid waiver program provides support to seniors who qualify for nursing home care but would prefer to receive care in their own homes or in an assisted living facility. This support includes personal care visits, adult day care and assistive technology. This program is not an entitlement, and there is a waiting list.
To be eligible for the CHOICES program, seniors must meet the financial requirements for Medicaid long-term services and supports. These requirements are different from the requirements for general Medicaid coverage. Seniors must have a monthly income that is less than $2,313. Their total assets, excluding their primary residence, must be less than $2,000.
