The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Senior care costs are affected by a number of factors, including the level of care needed, the care setting and the number of service hours provided. The cost of living in a locale also has an impact, which helps account for the high costs of all types of senior care in the Bothell area.
Due to the skilled services and 24-hour care nursing homes provide, these facilities are the most expensive option, with rates almost double those for assisted living. In-home care provided by a homemaker or home health aide costs about $350 per month more than assisted living, but the real price difference may be significantly higher when household operating expenses are taken into account. Assisted living rates typically cover room and board, but seniors receiving care at home have to pay expenses such as upkeep, utilities and food in additional to the cost of care.
Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
Washington residents who need assistance with health care costs may qualify for the state Medicaid plan known as Apple Health. This and similar Medicaid programs across the country provide vital coverage for low-income people through a jointly funded collaboration between individual states and the federal government. In Washington, the state program covers doctors visits, emergency and hospital care, laboratory and X-ray services and long-term care services and supports.
Apple Health offers the Community First Choice Option program to give eligible seniors an alternative to institutional care in a traditional nursing home setting. The program allows seniors to receive services at home or in community settings, such as adult residential care and assisted living facilities. Covered services and supports can include:
To qualify for Apple Health coverage for long-term care, seniors aged 65 and older must need an intermediate or nursing facility level of care and meet the following financial criteria:
All types of income count, including pensions, Social Security benefits, investment income and retirement plan withdrawals. Some resources are excluded, such as one vehicle, a primary home, household furnishings and personal effects.
Seniors who qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits are automatically eligible for Apple Health long-term care coverage.
Long-term care in a nursing facility and care through the Community First Choice program are entitlements under the Washington state Medicaid plan, so there are no enrollment caps or waiting lists to hinder eligible seniors from receiving covered services.
Community Options Program Entry System Waiver
Apple Health also offers the COPES home and community-based services waiver that can help cover the cost of long-term care. The waiver’s purpose is to keep seniors who’d otherwise need nursing home placement in their own home or a community setting, such as an assisted living facility. To qualify, applicants must be aged 65 and older and need assistance performing a minimum of two activities of daily living. They must also meet the Apple Health program’s financial criteria for individuals of $2,313 in monthly income and $2,000 in countable resources. The COPES program doesn’t pay for assisted living room and board, but it does cover a range of services including:
The COPES waiver isn’t an Apple Health entitlement program and is subject to statewide enrollment caps. This means seniors may face a wait to receive services after they’re approved for coverage.
To learn more about the COPES waiver or to apply, Bothell seniors can contact the Snohomish County Senior Information and Assistance center at (425) 513-1900.
Optional State Supplementation
Bothell seniors with little income and few resources who are eligible for Supplemental Security Income benefits may also qualify for a monthly cash top-up through the Washington Department of Social and Health Services. These extra Optional State Supplementation funds of $46 per person can be used toward assisted living room and board costs.
To apply for SSI and OSS benefits, seniors can visit the Social Security Administration office at 18905 33rd Ave. W., Ste. 207, in Lynnwood or call (800) 772-1213.
Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly
Bothwell adults aged 55 and older and eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid may benefit from the PACE program. This managed care program’s purpose is to delay or prevent nursing home admission by providing seniors with medical care and long-term care services and supports in the community. The range of services an enrollee receives is determined by their case management providers but may include primary physician, dental and nursing care, necessary medical equipment, personal care assistance, nutritional services and prescription drugs.
To qualify for the PACE program, Bothell residents must live in a provider coverage area as determined by their zip code. For more information, interested seniors can contact Providence PACE intake at (206) 320-5325 or speak to an ICHS PACE enrollment specialist by calling (206) 292-1584.
