Frequently Asked Questions on Assisted Living in Tucson

Are assisted living costs covered by Medicaid or Medicare?

Medicaid is commonly used to cover the costs of care and programs received in an assisted living center but it will not cover the expense of room and board. With room and board costs in the thousands of dollars each month, states have created packages and waivers that will help off-set the expenses of housing in assisted living communities.

Ordinarily, Medicare cannot be utilized to handle the expenses at an assisted living facility. Medicare health insurance is made to cover temporary stays at hospitals or rehab facilities and prescriptions and drugs with a begin and end date. If you’re forced into an assisted living facility as a result of an incident or health condition, Medicare could cover your primary expenses if they are advised or prescribed by a health care provider.

Do you know the average cost of assisted living care in Arizona?

For anyone who is wondering what you’ll need to have set aside for assisted living costs in STATE, Genworth provides an estimate based on their yearly questionnaire of senior care communities in the US. Genworth estimates you should be ready to pay up to $3,800 a month for assisted living care services in Arizona.

Will the level of care provided usually vary by assisted living facility in Arizona?

As determined by the state, assisted living communities must offer specific care services for their occupants to stay licensed. Although assisted living facilities differ by state, you should expect these services to be offered for residents:

  • Nursing Care and Medical Services
  • Distribution of Medication
  • Emergency Call Systems
  • Dining Services and Meal Prep
  • Exercise and Social Activities

Could assisted living costs be deducted on taxes?

Under HIPPA, extended care services become a non-reimbursed medical expense that can be written off. Extended care services incorporate lots of the care provided for residents in an assisted living facility including washing, dressing, meal prep, cleaning, and other maintenance services.

Do assisted living communities need to obtain a license?

Every single state requires all assisted living communities to submit an application and obtain a license so that they can provide care and housing solutions for seniors. Assisted living communities are not allowed to open their doors to residents until an examination has been carried out and a license has been granted. In addition to licensure, some facilities may seek out accreditation once they are open and accreditors can observe the assisted living center at work. In planning to move into an assisted living center it is important to read about the licenses, certifications, and accreditations the community maintains.
