How people pay for assisted living in Fresno

Let us walk you through your assisted living payment options. First, we describe your personal payment options, some of which seniors and families can combine with certain senior benefits. Then, we present a detailed overview of several senior benefits that may reduce your assisted living costs. The senior benefits we include are Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, Medi-Cal, Medicare, and Social Security.

By reviewing this section, we hope you’ll understand potential senior benefits and feel confident in combining them effectively. Each tab also has access to benefit applications and local contacts for senior benefit assistance.

Private pay methods

Seniors and families typically use personal income sources, like savings accounts, investment returns, pensions, and Social Security benefits to cover a portion of their Fresno assisted living costs. In addition, some of the following options may be used to fund senior care services depending on you and your loved ones’ current resources:

VA benefits
18625

Approximate number of veterans living in Fresno as of 2021

Approximately 44% of veterans in Fresno are 65+.

Some assisted living costs may be covered by certain Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits that apply to Fresno senior veterans or their surviving spouses.

The VA Aid and Attendance benefit is typically the most useful — and generous — option for senior veterans who are disabled and enrolled in VA health care. Eligible senior veterans or their surviving spouses can receive monthly payments in addition to their Veterans Pension. By combining these income sources, you or your loved one can pay for costs of services that improve one’s quality of life, like monthly assisted living costs.

CalVet is another option to consider. Eligible senior veterans or their surviving spouses can use this California program to enroll in a Veterans Benefit Enhancement Program (VBE). VBEs help seniors with disabilities transition from Medi-Cal to VA health care, a program that can help you access additional veterans benefits.

Oftentimes, seniors think they won’t qualify for VA benefits. However, we recommend contacting a local veterans service organization (VSO) to learn more about VA benefit eligibility. It may also be helpful to peruse the VA’s list of service-connected disabilities to see what might apply. However, the VA benefit application process is overwhelming for many seniors. Finding help with your application is crucial.

Find help through your local VSOs

To get the most out of potential benefits, let a local, VA-vetted veterans service organization (VSO) guide you through the application process. Local VSOs can help seniors apply with greater success and may also assist with appealing denied claims. Browse these local resources to begin the process of applying for your eligible benefits:

  • The Fresno County Veterans Service Office can help you through the entire process of attaining VA benefits.
  • The Fresno Vet Center provides confidential assistance and counseling throughout the benefit attainment process.
  • Fresno’s Veterans of Foreign War (VFW) chapter and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) chapter advocate for senior veterans and provide application assistance.

Medi-Cal

California’s Medicaid program, called Medi-Cal, doesn’t cover the cost of room and board in Fresno assisted living communities. Instead, Medi-Cal is typically used to cover the costs of health care services for seniors of low-income status. Seniors who are eligible for Medi-Cal may also benefit from the Assisted Living Waiver (also known as ALW). ALW is a home and community based services (HCBS) waiver that helps seniors access care in an assisted living community rather than in a medical setting, like a hospital or a skilled nursing facility.

Covered California, the state’s health care portal, is a helpful Medi-Cal application tool for seniors of low-income status. The Covered California application and the Medi-Cal application are one and the same. Once approved for Medi-Cal, seniors are offered additional low-cost, full-coverage plans that help them compensate for any coverage gaps. So, seniors can choose to enroll in additional coverage plans or in a baseline Medi-Cal plan.

Enrolling in Medi-Cal is usually simple, but you can check out the following resources to get more information on the Medi-Cal application process:

  • California’s Medi-Cal Rx Member Helpline and the Fresno-Madera Agency on Aging can help start your application effectively.
  • The local long-term care ombudsman program supports seniors through the application process and helps with accessing programs after enrollment.
  • My Medi-Cal is a comprehensive guide to help you understand the benefits.

Medicare

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that typically covers medical costs for seniors aged 65+, such as hospital care and medically necessary in-home health care. However, Medicare doesn’t cover the cost of room and board in assisted living facilities, as these are considered custodial costs. Instead, the components below are typically covered under Medicare:[03]

  • Medicare Part A covers inpatient hospital stays, some home health care, and hospice care.
  • Medicare Part B covers some doctors’ appointments, preventive services, outpatient care, and medical supplies.
  • Medicare Part D covers some prescription medications and vaccines.

Seniors may also have the option to save money on Medicare premiums and prescriptions costs through Medicare Savings Programs. Seniors who meet low-income requirements and are enrolled in Medicare can apply for Medicare Savings Programs online through BenefitsCal. We recommend browsing the following resources for additional support with the application:

  • Before seeking help elsewhere, contact the local Social Security Administration office.
  • Get in touch with the local long-term care ombudsman program or enroll in the Medicare Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program (HICAP) to apply for and fully understand your benefits.
  • To learn about local senior programs and services, consider the Fresno County 2-1-1 helpline and the Fresno-Madera Agency on Aging.

Understand California laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) regulates and licenses assisted living facilities and residential care homes in Fresno. The CDSS also licenses other senior care facilities in the state, often called Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE).[04]

Seniors must be assessed before moving into a Fresno assisted living facility. The assessment process may involve interviews and health record reviews. In addition, assisted living facilities are required to follow these regulations:[05]

  • House a maximum of two residents per bedroom
  • Provide individual privacy in each bathroom
  • Ensure bedrooms can accommodate equipment, such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Provide clean and accessible common areas for residents
  • Provide activities involving social, leisure, and daily living skills

Assisted living facilities are inspected by the CDSS once a year and within 10 days of receiving a complaint.[05] Inspection reports for each licensed community can be found through the CDSS Care Facility Search. Scroll down to “Search By Facility Group,” and select “Elderly Assisted Living.” Then, select the “Facility Type” and “Fresno County.” Finally, click on the search button. Or you can search by facility name or address.
