How people pay for assisted living in St. Petersburg

This section will help you connect with resources that may be able to help you pay for assisted living in St. Petersburg.

Private pay methods

Those looking to find assisted living in St. Petersburg, Florida, can use several different methods of private pay to cover the cost of living. Some popular options include personal savings, retirement funds, pensions, investments, or Social Security benefits. Other forms of private pay that can help cover the cost of living are as follows:

VA benefits
15734

Number of veterans who live in St. Petersburg

About 22% of St. Petersburg veterans are 75+

Veterans who need daily assistance for daily activities, have a significant vision impairment, or already live in a long-term care facility may be eligible for benefits that can pay for the cost of assisted living. The most notable of these benefits is the VA Aid and Attendance benefit. Contacting VA-vetted and -recognized resources is an excellent first step — whether you think you qualify or not — to ensure you can take advantage of all benefits you’re eligible for.

Experienced veterans services officers can help veterans through the application process and gain access to important benefits; this also includes the VA Pension. Pinellas County — of which St. Petersburg is a part — offers a veteran and military resource guide to help veterans access benefits. Assistance can also be found at one of the two local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) posts or at the following veterans services organizations, which are all located within the St. Petersburg Regional VA Office: Disabled American Veterans (DAV), AMVETS, Paralyzed Veterans of America, VFW, and Vietnam Veterans of America.

Medicaid

Medicaid can cover the costs of assisted living, but the process and coverage vary from state to state; every state has its own Medicaid system, with Florida’s being called State Medicaid Management Care (SMMC). Florida offers a Medicaid guide to help seniors get started.

Florida assisted living residents can get in-home care through the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver system. Those in Florida looking to apply to SMMC can do so through this website or by calling 866-762-2237. The application process can be a bit tough to navigate, so it is recommended that seniors in Florida use the resources available to make the process easier, such as their local ombudsman.

Florida’s Statewide Medicaid Managed Long-Term Care Managed Care (LTCMC) plans cover the costs of assisted living facility care, chore services, nursing care, and medical equipment and supplies for those who qualify. Within the LTCMC plans are two programs: the Long-Term Care (LTC) Managed Care Program and the Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program. To qualify for either, assisted living residents need to meet two standards: financial eligibility and having medical necessity to prevent nursing facility placement.[02]

It is important to note that while assisted living facilities can be covered by Florida’s LTCMC plans, each LTCMC plan contracts with its own providers — meaning not all assisted living facilities are covered under every plan. It is vital that seniors choose the plan that covers the facility they want to enter.

Florida’s State Health Insurance Program (SHIP), a Medicare program run by local Medicaid, is called Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE) and offers one-on-one consultations to seniors who need help connecting to resources. The local Area Agency on Aging and long-term care ombudsman can also help seniors get connected with useful benefits.

Medicare

Medicare is a federally run long-term health insurance plan for seniors. While it does not cover assisted living costs in Florida, such as rent, it can help pay for some of the expenses that come with in-home medical care or other medical needs. To apply for Medicare, Floridians will want to go through the Florida ACCESS system or visit their local Department of Children and Families Center.

Medicare Savings Programs in Florida can help qualified seniors cover some Medicare costs like copayments and deductibles, while the Drug Assistance Program can help cut medication costs.

Another Medicare program to utilize is the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP). This program is run through Florida’s Medicaid program but is administered through Medicare. The name of this program in Florida is Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE). The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) program can help with costs of medical or holistic care.

Applications for these benefits can be complex, so it’s good to have someone on your side. Your local ombudsman will have plenty of experience going through this process and can help connect you with benefits. You can also connect with your local Social Security office or local Area Agency on Aging for further assistance.

Understand Florida laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

Assisted living facilities in Florida are considered a vital part of long-term care, and because of this, they are required to be licensed by the Bureau of Health Facility Regulation; relicensing occurs every two years.[03] In addition to standard licensure, specialty licenses such as limited nursing services, extended congregate care, and limited mental health services can be acquired by facilities offering specialized care plans.

To become licensed, assisted living facilities must meet standards when it comes to staffing and staff training; for example, the regulations require minimum staff hours per week for different numbers of residents to ensure adequate coverage for residents’ needs. Inspections occur at the time of licensing and also any time that the licensing agency deems an inspection necessary. Inspections assess food safety, physical safety, and biomedical waste. You can find inspections via the Agency for Health Care Administration’s public records.

Assisted living facilities are required to be properly staffed at all times. It is required that at least one staff member with certification in First Aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation be on the premises 24 hours a day.[03] The kitchen staff must also provide meals that meet the nutritional needs of residents, including therapeutic diets ordered by medical providers.

As for residents, there are eligibility restrictions as well. Those who wish to live in assisted living need to be able to perform many of the activities of daily living, cannot need 24-hour assistance, and are able to participate in social or leisure activities. New residents in all Florida assisted living facilities are examined by a licensed nurse within 60 days of moving in. Residents will then be examined monthly thereafter.[03]

Transportation for seniors in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg is a city where you don’t necessarily need to have a car, but it certainly helps to have one. There are walkable areas in the city, but if you are going to need to run errands, you will need some form of transportation. With that being said, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PTSA) can get seniors where they need to be; plus, it offers discounts for people over the age of 65. The PTSA also offers the Disabled Citizen Program, which offers rides at a reduced fare.

Walk Score has assessed St. Petersburg at a walkability score of 43 out of 100, meaning vehicular travel is needed.[05] To get this number, Walk Score takes into account walking routes, public density, biking routes, and public transit. It is important to note that 87% of A Place for Mom’s partner assisted living facilities are located close to public transportation; the same percentage offers complimentary transportation, too.
