The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Compared to other areas of the country, senior care costs in Coppell are fairly consistent, with only a $3,600 range between the least and most expensive options. Local seniors who utilize adult day health services pay just $1,408 per month on average. Those who require the 24-hour skilled services offered in nursing homes pay the highest monthly cost of $5,064.
Assisted living averages $4,350 per month, which is about $300 to $350 more costly than in-home services from homemakers ($4,004) and home health aides ($4,040). When weighing these two options, it’s important to consider the value of room and board included with assisted living. Seniors receiving care at home have to pay for shelter and food in addition to care services, which can increase their total monthly cost substantially.

The federal government introduced the Medicaid program in 1965 to ensure access to basic health care services for economically vulnerable Americans. The program serves parents and dependent children, pregnant women, blind and disabled adults and senior citizens through a combination of state and federal funding.
In Texas, approximately 4.5 million low-income residents are enrolled in the state Medicaid program and almost one-quarter are blind, disabled or elderly. Texas Medicaid delivers health care services through managed care plans that provides a wide range of benefits, such as:
Coppell residents must be aged 65 or older or have a disability lasting a year or more if younger, to qualify for long-term care services through Texas Medicaid. Only U.S. citizens or legal immigrants are eligible for coverage, and they must have:
If only one spouse applies, the non-applicant’s income isn’t counted. They may also be eligible to receive up to $3,160.50 of the applicant’s monthly income and up to $126,420 in jointly owned assets. These living and resource allowances are mandated by Medicaid to prevent spousal impoverishment.
Some resources are automatically disregarded, such as household and personal effects, one vehicle, irrevocable burial trusts and one owner-occupied home valued at $585,000 or less.
Seniors who meet the Texas Medicaid long-term care eligibility requirements except for income may consider setting up a Qualified Income Trust to lower it to the required level. Excess income gets deposited monthly, and the account’s trust agent can only withdraw funds to pay allowable medical and long-term care expenses.
Those with limited income and few assets who apply for Supplemental Security Income benefits are automatically enrolled in Texas Medicaid by the Social Security Administration.

STAR+PLUS Waiver Program
The STAR+PLUS waiver offers Coppell seniors who need long-term care an alternative to institutional nursing home placement. The waiver program provides all-inclusive medical and community-based long-term care support services through the applicant’s choice of managed care providers serving Dallas County.
To qualify, Coppell residents must be assessed as requiring a nursing-home level of care. Applicants must be approved to receive full Medicaid benefits and meet certain other qualifying criteria, such as residing in a nursing home and receiving Medicaid or currently receiving SSI.
Approved applicants receive the full suite of medical services available through the state Medicaid plan as well as care coordination services and additional supports deemed necessary, such as:

Community Care for the Aged and Disabled
Coppell seniors at risk of nursing home admission may be eligible for the Community Care for the Aged and Disabled program. To qualify, applicants must be aged 18 or older, need daily assistance due to functional impairment or disability and have:
This non-Medicaid program offers support services targeted to different living arrangements. Seniors in assisted living communities can receive 24-hour supervision and help with daily living activities. Facility charges for room and board aren’t covered by the program, so those who qualify for CCAD benefits are responsible for paying this portion of their care costs. Those currently receiving similar Medicaid services are ineligible for the program.
To learn more about the CCAD program or apply, Coppell seniors should contact the Dallas Area Agency on Aging at (214) 871-5065.
Optional State Supplementation
Seniors over age 65 and adults with disabilities receiving or eligible for SSI benefits also qualify for an additional monthly payment through the Texas Optional State Supplementation program. The OSS adds an extra $60 to the checks of SSI recipients living in intermediate care facilities to put toward room and board or other care expenses.
To apply for SSI and Texas OSS benefits, Coppell residents can contact the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213.
