Frequently Asked Questions on Assisted Living in Lake Forest

Can assisted living be covered by Medicaid or Medicare?

Medicaid is utilized to fund the costs of care and services received at an assisted living community but it doesn’t take care of the costs of housing. With room and board costs in the thousands of dollars each month, states have invented programs and waivers that will help off-set the expenses of housing in assisted living communities.

Traditionally, Medicare can’t be used to take care of the expenses at an assisted living facility. Medicare health insurance is created to cover short-term stays at medical centers or rehabilitation facilities and prescriptions and medicine that has a start and stop date. Should you be forced into an assisted living community resulting from an accident or health issue, Medicare may take care of your primary fees if they are advised or prescribed by a physician.

Just how expensive is the price of assisted living care in California?

For anyone who is thinking about what you’ll need to have set aside for assisted living expenses in California, Genworth gives an estimate based on their yearly survey of senior care facilities in the US.
