If you meet eligibility requirements, Medicaid may help pay for nursing home care. Each state determines its own standards and requirements. In most cases, qualified residents are required to make a co-payment that consists of their monthly income (Social Security check, pension, etc.), less a personal allowance. However, the amount you are required to pay is determined by your local Medicaid office.
To learn more about Medicaid coverage and enrollment, contact our admissions coordinator or a social worker. Or you can visit the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) website and click on the desired state for specific contact information.
