Long Term Care - Services and Supports
Long Term Care is now referred to as Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS). When you are faced with the long term care of a loved one in Connecticut, you may be surprised to learn how expensive it can be. The costs for Home Health Care, Adult Day Care, an Assisted Living Facility, and Nursing Home Care can wipe out your family's resources in less than one year. We are CT Medicaid Specialists, and we are here to help.
Millions of American children, adults, and seniors, have experienced debilitating conditions and chronic illnesses. Long-term care services are an important component in the rehabilitation process. Many seniors are surprised to find that daily care for eating, bathing, dressing, and personal care is not covered under Medicare. Actually, Medicaid is the primary payer across the nation for long-term care services. Medicaid allows for the coverage of these services through several vehicles and over a continuum of settings, ranging from institutional care to community based long-term services and supports.
Locally owned and operated, CT Medicaid Specialists, LLC works with you in the complex application process for Medicaid benefits. Typically, seniors will stay in a skilled care facility until they can recover and be moved to a traditional nursing home setting. A skilled care facility is often a stop for seniors from the hospital into a more long-term nursing home solution. Some seniors may need to stay longer, but the cost will need to come out of pocket.
What does Medicaid pay for?
Medicaid pays for medical care for people who do not have enough money to pay their medical bills. Nursing home care is only one type of care paid by Medicaid. If you qualify, Medicaid will pay for your nursing home care and most of your costs while you are in a nursing home, including
- doctor visits;
- hospital care;
- your room (shared);
- tests and treatments; and
- equipment your doctor says you need.
