When it comes to long-term care in San Antonio and throughout the rest of the country, the level of care required is the most significant factor influencing the cost of care. Although nursing care in the city is nearly $1,000 more than the cost of assisted living in San Antonio, home care and assisted living services are similarly priced.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in San Antonio
Medicaid in Texas
Throughout Texas, eligible seniors can access the state’s STAR+PLUS program, which is a Medicaid managed care program that’s exclusive to those with disabilities and seniors aged 65 and older. Participants of this program receive a range of benefits that include assisted living services or home care, as well as access to necessary medical care, case management and social support.
To be eligible for this program, seniors must be aged 65 or older and fall under one of the following categories:
- Receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Eligible for the STAR+PLUS Home and Community Based Services waiver
- Receiving Medicaid through a Social Security exclusion program
- Residing in a nursing home and receiving Medicaid
- In Medicaid’s Breast and Cervical Cancer program
Additionally, applicants should require full-time care and assistance with their activities of daily living or full-time medical supervision to be eligible for the program and are subject to financial eligibility requirements. Individual applicants may not earn more than $750 per month and may not own assets totaling more than $2,000; however, the applicant’s home does not count as an asset in this scenario. There are caps on the number of applicants who may enroll in this program, and waiting lists are typically quite long. Seniors can receive further information about eligibility and how to apply by calling 1-866-566-8989.
Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living
Community First Choice
The CFC option is a Medicaid program that is designed to prevent seniors who are living in their homes or in assisted living facilities from becoming further institutionalized in a nursing home as the need for care increases. This program provides basic assisted living services to seniors who without daily support would require a nursing level of care. This program provides access to self-directed care, which means that participants have more flexibility when it comes to choosing who provides their care.
The CFC option is an entitlement program, which means that eligibility requirements are less stringent and there is no cap on the number of seniors who may apply. To be eligible for this program, seniors must be 65 years of age or older, require daily support and meet the financial requirements of the state Medicaid program. For more information on eligibility and how to apply, seniors can contact the state Medicaid office at 1-866-566-8989.
Community Care for the Aged and Disabled (CCAD)
The CCAD program is a state-run, non-Medicaid program that provides care services to seniors who wish to avoid moving into a nursing home. Seniors may receive care under this program in their home or within an assisted living facility. Assisted living residents who participate in this program are eligible to receive coverage for the cost of services.
To be eligible for this program, applicants must be residents of Texas, may not currently receive Medicaid and must require daily care. Financial eligibility requirements are more lenient than Medicaid. Individual applicants may not earn more than $2,250 per month, and total assets may not be valued at more than $5,000. To apply, seniors can visit their local Aging and Disability Resource Center or call 1-855-937-2372.
Optional State Supplement
The Texas Department of Health and Human Services aids those who require additional funding for long-term care by supplementing federal SSI payments with a state top-up, known as an optional state supplement (OSS). OSS payments are meant to assist seniors in paying for room and board costs in an assisted living facility or other long-term care home.
To be eligible, seniors must receive SSI from the federal government. Benefit amounts are determined by a variety of factors, including the applicant’s income and budgetary needs. To apply, seniors can contact the Texas Department of Health and Human Services at 1-855-937-2372
