The average cost of care depends on the type of care required, and in Ogden and many other cities like it, the difference in costs between different types of care is substantial. In Ogden, the average monthly cost of nursing home care is nearly $3,000 greater than that of assisted living. While the cost of home care is similar to assisted living costs, seniors who choose to continue living at home need to consider the additional expenses that are incurred as a homeowner or renter, such as rent/mortgage payments, utilities and groceries. These costs are typically included in the price of assisted living.

Medicaid in Utah is available to the state’s most vulnerable residents with low incomes including seniors, disabled individuals, children and pregnant woman. Medicaid provides a variety of programs and services to these individuals, including financial assistance and access to medical and supportive care, prescription medications and equipment.
Seniors residing in an assisted living facility can access financial assistance from Medicaid under one of two waiver programs: the Aging Waiver and the New Choices Waiver. To be eligible for these waivers in Utah, seniors must be 65 years of age or older and complete a comprehensive assessment to determine the level of care they need. Financial requirements stipulate that individual applicants may not have an income that exceeds $12,490 annually and assets valued at more than $2,000, while couples may not have a combined annual income that exceeds $16,910 and assets valued at more than $3,000.
Utah’s Aging Waiver operates under the state’s Medicaid Managed Care Program. It’s designed to help seniors retain some of their independence when they are at risk of moving into a nursing care facility. Seniors participating in this waiver program may be residing at home or in an assisted living facility. The program covers the cost of long-term care as well as daily nurse visits, senior companions, respite care, nonemergency transportation and other necessary health care expenses.
Seniors can apply for this waiver by calling the Division of Aging and Adult Services at (801) 538-3910.
New Choices Waiver Program
The New Choices Waiver is a separate part of the state’s Medicaid Managed Care Program. It helps seniors who are residing in nursing care homes to transition back into an assisted living facility when their need for care has lessened. The program provides seniors with financial help with the cost of care as well as transitional counseling services. It came into existence to help reduce the level of stress on the Medicaid system, which is largely the result of the high cost of nursing care.
In addition to the Medicaid state plan requirements mentioned previously, seniors must reside in an approved nursing home to participate in the New Choices Waiver, and they must be able to safely move back into their community or an assisted living facility.
To apply for this program or to learn more about the application process, seniors can contact (800) 662-9651.
Optional State Supplement
As in many states, Utah offers an optional state supplement (OSS). The OSS is a cash benefit that’s provided to Supplemental Security Income recipients with exceptionally low incomes. The benefit is exclusive to those who reside in long-term care facilities. Payments are determined by the senior’s income. Individual OSS applicants must not own assets valued at more than $2,000, and couples may not own assets valued at more than $3,000.
To apply for the OSS benefit, seniors can call their local Social Security Administration office at (800) 772-1213.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Seniors who have purchased long-term care insurance may be eligible to have their insurance provider pay for the cost of assisted living. In most cases, policyholders will need to pay a deductible annually before their insurance company will pay for their care. Generally, long-term care insurance policies must be purchased before an individual’s health begins declining and before the need for long-term care exists.
Premiums, deductibles and policy terms vary depending on the insurance provider and the plan. Insurance companies usually consider an individual’s age and health history when determining rates and eligibility.
Elderlife Bridge Loan
Elderlife Financial Services offers seniors an alternative way to pay for long-term care when they’re unable to obtain financial assistance from Medicaid or other government assistance programs. Elder bridge loans are issued to long-term care facilities, and the senior is responsible for repaying the loan in full. Payments are typically made monthly, and the loans have flexible terms and low interest rates.
While applicants must meet credit and income requirements, those who are unable to obtain approval on their own can include up to six cosigners on their application, which can increase the likelihood of approval and reduce monthly payments.
