Monthly costs here are almost $500 above the state average ($4,451) and close to $1,000 over the national average of $4,000. Prices in most areas of Virginia are in the $4,000s per month, including in Blacksburg ($4,695), Charlottesville ($4,577) and Harrisonburg ($4,100).

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Senior care costs in Henrico County vary significantly depending on the type of care, the specific services offered and where care is received. Nursing homes that provide 24-hour skilled care and services, such as medication management, cost about $3,000 more than assisted living, which is also provided in a residential setting. Homemaker and home health aide services cost about $1,000 per month less than assisted living. When the value of assisted living room and board is factored in, this price gap with in-home care becomes noticeably narrow.

Medicaid is the federal and state-funded program that ensures basic health care coverage to low-income Americans of all ages. This joint initiative is administered at the state level according to federal guidelines. In Virginia, the Department of Medical Assistance Services administers the program, which provides medical and long-term care services to about one million eligible state residents.
To qualify for Medical Assistance coverage for long-term care services, Henrico County residents must:
MA counts income from all sources when determining eligibility. Assets that count include cash, bank account balances, stocks and bonds, retirement accounts and real estate other than an occupied primary home. Additional exempt assets include household and personal effects, one automobile and irrevocable burial trusts.
Virginia Medical Assistance provides some leeway on the above limits for a married applicant whose spouse isn’t applying for coverage. An individual who’s over the income and asset thresholds may be able to qualify after spousal living and resource allowances are made, which can be up to $3,160.50 in monthly income and $126,420 in jointly held assets.
Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus waiver
The Medical Assistance program covers institutional long-term care in a nursing home as an entitlement. The Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus waiver is available for eligible seniors who want to live at home or in a community-based care setting and delay or prevent nursing home admission. The waiver provides comprehensive medical services and long-term care supports and services through six approved managed care health plan providers. The waiver benefits a senior may receive include:
Virginia residents aged 65 and older in need of medical services or long-term care are enrolled automatically in the CCC Plus waiver program if they’re approved for Medical Assistance.

To learn more about the Auxiliary Grant program or to begin the assessment and application process, seniors should contact Henrico County DSS at (804) 501-4001.
Long-Term Care Insurance
Seniors who are planning ahead for a future move to assisted living may be interested in purchasing a long-term care insurance policy to help cover the associated costs. The coverage provided as well as the requirements and limitations of an LTC policy can vary between insurance companies, so it’s wise to shop around and ask questions before making a choice. The Virginia Bureau of Insurance sets standards for LTC policies offered in the state, such as built-in inflation protection, rules regarding preexisting condition coverage, a 30-day free-look provision and numerous others. Seniors can expect to provide details of their health history when applying, which may affect coverage availability and premium costs.
For help understanding the details included in an LTC insurance policy or assistance with filing a claim, Henrico County seniors can contact Elderlife Financial Services at (888) 228-4500.
