FAQs on Assisted living in Vancouver

Is assisted living expenses covered by Medicaid or Medicare?

Medicaid is commonly used to cover the costs of care and services received in an assisted living facility but it does not take care of the costs of room and board. With room and board costs in the thousands of dollars every month, states have created programs and waivers that will help off-set the expenses of housing in assisted living facilities.

The costs associated with moving into and living in an assisted living community are not covered by Medicare Insurance. Medicare insurance coverage extends to short-term, prescribed care or medicine by a physician. If moving to an assisted living community is not your decision and is being proposed by your physician, Medicare could take care of many of the costs for a certain amount of time. Medicaid and other state managed programs can financially support people trying to find support.

Just how expensive is the cost of assisted living care in Washington?

The average price of assisted living care in Washington is $5,135 each month based on the yearly review completed by Genworth every year. Genworth has been surveying senior care facilities in the United States annually for 15 years.

What sorts of care are usually common in an assisted living community?

As determined by the state, assisted living communities must offer you a number of care programs for their residents to stay licensed. Although assisted living communities vary by state, you can expect these types of 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 subtracted on taxes?

Continued care services that are made available at assisted living facilities are tax deductible for individuals under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. To benefit from these deductions residents need to be ready to itemize the deductions. Unreimbursed medical expenses must meet or exceed 7.5% of a taxpayers adjusted gross income. Sometimes, housing costs may be 100% deductible in addition to individual care programs being deductible as well.

Do assisted living facilities get standards that must be met in Washington?

Just before opening an assisted living community in Washington the care supplier must go through a senior care licensing process. Personnel will provide an in-person visit to the community and a licensure exam must be passed so regulators can ensure care providers understand guidelines that must be met and preserved. All listings on our website are of licensed care providers.
