Assisted Living Costs in Austin

According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study, Austin’s average monthly cost for assisted living is $5,190. This makes it significantly more expensive than the national average of $4,000 and the state average of $3,795. Austin is one of the most expensive cities in the state for assisted living, alongside major metropolitan areas like Dallas ($4,350) and Odessa ($4,605). Other metro regions in Texas are comparatively inexpensive, including Texarkana ($2,265) and Longview ($3,100).

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart

  • Austin: $5,190
  • National average: $4,000
  • State average: $3,795

Care Cost Comparison

The type of care needed always influences the cost of care, and Austin is no exception. Unlike most areas, nursing home care in Austin is only slightly more expensive than assisted living, with semiprivate rooms averaging $5,323 per month. Home health services tend to be more affordable than assisted living options — about $1,000 to $1,100 less per month, depending on the extent of the services needed. When choosing between home care and assisted living services, consider the added expenses of rent, utilities, food and upkeep of your home. With assisted living services, monthly fees typically include these expenses.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Austin

Medicaid in Texas

In Austin, Medicaid provides medical assistance for qualified candidates. Adults may qualify if they are 65 years of age or older, have disabilities or take part in the Medicaid Buy-In program. The state’s Medicaid program covers services such as doctor’s visits, prescriptions, hospital care, vision care, dental care and lab/X-ray charges. To qualify for Medicaid, seniors must have an annual household income below $24,037 for individuals or $32,591 for couples. Seniors with a higher income may qualify for the Buy-In program, which requires monthly payments. To sign up for Medicaid, you can call 877-541-7905.

In Texas, managed care organizations operate Medicaid. STAR+PLUS is the state’s primary managed care program for seniors. Members receive Medicaid health coverage and access to long-term services, including primary home care, assisted living, respite care and adaptive aids. Austin is part of the program’s Harris Service Area. Seniors in this area are eligible for medical plans from Amerigroup, Molina Healthcare of Texas and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan. For comprehensive long-term care, Texas also offers waiver programs, which are explained in more detail below.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

HCBS STAR+PLUS Waiver

In Texas, the HCBS STAR+PLUS waiver covers assisted living support. This program offers high-level benefits for seniors with complex health needs. Because STAR+PLUS offers this waiver, medical care providers, such as Amerigroup and UnitedHealthcare, coordinate these services. Primary care providers — usually doctors, nurse practitioners or physician’s assistants — work with service coordinators to determine eligibility. Once seniors are deemed eligible, their waiver services are authorized by the local Texas Health and Human Services STAR+PLUS support unit, as only state agencies can approve or deny waiver services.

The HCBS STAR+PLUS Waiver, or SPW, is the category of Medicaid eligibility for assisted living services. Seniors who have SPW benefits also have coverage for dental services, adaptive aids, medical equipment/supplies, physical therapy and nutritional services.

For more information on the HCBS STAR+PLUS waiver, seniors should contact their primary care provider or designated service coordinator. They can also call the Austin branch of the HHS at 1-855-839-3237.

Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities

Waiver seniors who have a diagnosis of deafblindness and one additional condition may be eligible for the DBMD waiver. This program is a component of the state’s intellectual and developmental disability services, and the local IDD authority (LIDDA) coordinates support for eligible seniors. The program provides people with community-based services, residential options, behavioral support and specialized therapies. Assisted living benefits are available, as are adaptive aids, audiology, orientation training, language therapy and case management.

For more information on the DBMD waiver, individuals can call the local Aging and Disability Resource Center at 1-855-937-2372.
