How people pay for assisted living in Cincinnati

Cincinnati residents can combine several private and public assistance options to help pay for assisted living. Assessing your loved one’s particular financial position will help you determine the best way to pay for assisted living costs.

Private pay methods

Your loved one may be able to fund assisted living care in Cincinnati through private pay methods if they have the resources. Private pay methods can include any income source, such as your loved one’s savings, Social Security benefits, pensions, investment returns, and any of the following:

VA benefits
11670

Number of veterans who live in Cincinnati

About 74% of Cincinnati veterans are 55+.

If your senior loved one is a U.S. military veteran, they may qualify for assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Veterans pension benefits, such as Aid and Attendance or Housebound Allowance, can provide senior veterans and their surviving spouses with supplemental income to improve their quality of life. Like any type of regular income, some VA benefits can help cover the costs of long-term care services, including assisted living.[03]

Veterans service officers

The application process for veterans benefits can be frustrating. Even if your loved one qualifies, any errors in the application could keep them from receiving benefits. Successfully applying usually requires assistance or advocacy. You and your senior loved one can visit an Ohio Department of Veterans Affairs field office to receive assistance and referrals from your local veteran service officers. As fellow veterans who are trained and certified in benefits offerings, veteran services officers are there to help Ohio senior veterans take advantage of their eligibility.

Additional assistance with VA benefits

For assistance with finding veterans benefits, visit the Ohio Department of Veterans Services webpage or contact the local VA office. The Ohio Attorney General website offers information on additional community resources for veterans, including financial support, legal advocacy, housing assistance, and more.

Each state has veterans service organizations vetted by the VA, including Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans offices. Find information on Cincinnati veteran service organizations below.

Medicaid

Medicaid is federal- and state-funded medical insurance for Americans with disabilities or low incomes. Each state’s Medicaid program varies; however, all Medicaid programs are required to follow federal guidelines. Medicaid in Ohio and Kentucky are simply referred to as Ohio Medicaid and Kentucky Medicaid, respectively. In order to receive Medicaid benefits, eligible seniors must be enrolled in a managed care organization (MCO), and the agency providing the care services must be contracted with that MCO.

Ohio Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid

Ohio Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid offers coverage for Ohio seniors and individuals with qualifying disabilities. To be eligible for ABD Medicaid, your senior loved one must meet Medicaid’s basic eligibility requirements, as well as one of the following criteria:

Qualifying seniors can use ABD Medicaid to cover costs of medical care, as well as some long-term care services.[03]

Medicaid waivers in Ohio and Kentucky

Medicaid programs will not cover the costs of room and board in an assisted living facility. However, Ohio and Kentucky seniors may be able to receive financial support with personal and medical care services in assisted living through home and community based services (HCBS) waivers, which are offered by both states’ Medicaid programs.

Ohio Assisted Living Medicaid waiver

Ohio Medicaid offers an Assisted Living Waiver program that is intended to provide coverage for qualified Ohio residents in an assisted living community. The Assisted Living Medicaid waiver will not cover costs of room and board; however, it will cover costs associated with personal care and medical care, including dementia care.

Eligible Ohio residents can use the Assisted Living Medicaid waiver for two categories of services: Assisted living services and community transitional services. Assisted living services include the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • 24-hour emergency response
  • Housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation
  • Nursing services
  • Recreational programs
  • Transportation services
  • Daily meals

Community transitional services typically consist of moving a senior from a skilled nursing facility to an assisted living or memory care community. Moving the senior’s household belongings and furniture is part of transitional care.[04]

Ohio PASSPORT waivers

The Ohio PASSPORT waiver is designed to cover care for people who need a nursing facility level of care but choose to live in the community instead of in a skilled nursing facility. This home and community based services waiver is for Ohio residents age 60 and over. Seniors who qualify can use the PASSPORT waiver to cover the cost of care in their own home, an assisted living facility, or another senior living facility, rather than move into a skilled nursing facility.

The PASSPORT waiver can cover costs of care services such as the following:

  • Personal care, which may include housekeeping, meal preparation, and assistance with activities of daily living
  • Nutritional support and meal delivery
  • Adult day services
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Medical equipment

PASSPORT waivers also include basic Medicaid coverage and may cover costs such as physician visits, prescription medications, and hospital stays.[05]

Kentucky Home and Community Based waiver

Kentucky Medicaid also offers the Home and Community Based (HCB) waiver, which Cincinnati seniors on the Kentucky side of the state line can take advantage of. Kentucky’s HCB waiver can cover the costs of services such as the following:

  • Adult day support and respite care
  • Personal care services
  • Simple home modifications
  • Meal services

Similar to Ohio’s HCBS waivers, Kentucky Medicaid HCB waivers have certain eligibility requirements. In addition to meeting regular Medicaid eligibility requirements, Kentucky residents must be aged 65 or older or have a qualifying disability, and they must require a nursing facility level of care in order to use this waiver.[06]

Where to get more assistance in Ohio

Ohio Medicaid recipients can manage their care through the Ohio Medicaid Consumer Hotline Member Portal. The Ohio Department of Aging has several area agencies on aging (AAAs) where Ohio residents can receive additional support with Medicare, Medicaid, and other services. A long-term care ombudsman can provide advice and advocacy on your loved one’s rights as a resident in senior living.

Where to get more assistance in Kentucky

Kentucky seniors can use the Kynect website to learn more about Medicaid benefits eligibility and access their benefits. Residents also have their own area agencies on aging, ombudsman advocacy, and more.

Medicare

Medicare is a federal program designed to extend health coverage to Americans 65 or older and individuals with qualifying disabilities. As a federal program, Medicare eligibility requirements will be the same in both Ohio and Kentucky. Medicare has multiple parts that cover different aspects of health care, such as the following:

  • Inpatient hospital stays or skilled nursing care
  • Doctors’ services, medical services, and medical supplies
  • Prescription medications

While Medicare health insurance doesn’t cover the cost of room and board at an assisted living community, it will cover many of the costs associated with medical treatment, including dementia care. Find more information on Medicare costs and coverage by visiting the federal Medicare website or by reaching out to a local Ohio Social Security Administration offices. Qualified seniors may get help paying for Medicare deductibles and premiums through Medicare Savings Programs.

The Social Security Administration can help your loved one receive access to Medicare support, if they’re eligible. Your loved one may also be able to dual enroll in Medicare and Medicaid, which will enable them to pay Medicare premiums using Medicaid benefits.

A local long-term care ombudsman can help your loved one access the benefits they qualify for and advocate for their rights. They can also investigate complaints of residents of long-term care communities and help ensure that seniors receive the quality of care they deserve. Find links to these resources below.

Understand Ohio and Kentucky laws and regulations for Cincinnati assisted living facilities

Ohio assisted living facilities must be licensed by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH). The ODH performs facility inspections before licensing the facility and then a minimum of every 15 months after licensure.[07]

Kentucky assisted living facilities must be certified annually through the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living to ensure they’re in compliance with state regulatory standards.[08]

Cincinnati assisted living staff requirements

While there are no minimum staff requirements for Cincinnati assisted living facilities, these facilities are required to employ specific types of personnel. Ohio and Kentucky have slightly different staff requirements.

Ohio assisted living staff requirements

  • The facility must have an administrator who is responsible for overseeing the facility’s operations. They must be on-site at least 20 hours per week and available at all times when off the premises.
  • The facility must have direct care staff. If the facility offers personal care, there must be one staff member trained in first aid on the premises at all times.
  • If the facility provides medication administration, they must have a registered nurse, a physician, or a licensed nurse practitioner certified in medication administration on staff.
  • If residents have late-stage cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, the facility must have a psychologist or physician either on staff or contracted with the facility.
  • Staff in Ohio assisted living facilities must undergo proper training for their responsibilities, as outlined in Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3701-16-06.[07]

Kentucky assisted living staff requirements

Kentucky assisted living regulations are in some ways less restrictive than in Ohio. Staff requirements are no exception.[09]

  • The facility must have enough staff to cover each resident’s individual needs and personal care plans for 24 hours per day.
  • The facility must have at least one awake staff member at all times.
  • The facility must have a manager who is age 21 or older and has earned a high school diploma. They must be able to manage the facility’s day-to-day operations.

Cincinnati assisted living service requirements

Both Kentucky and Ohio assisted living facilities must provide residents with the following services:[07,10]

  • Medication administration assistance
  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Recreation and social activities

Ohio assisted living services must also include the following:[07]

  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • Three meals per day or food-safe storage where residents can take care of their own food

In Kentucky, however, housekeeping and laundry services are not required, though residents must have access to facilities to do their own laundry.[11] Three meals per day and snacks are required in Kentucky assisted living facilities.[10]

Cincinnati assisted living building standards

Ohio and Kentucky assisted living facilities must uphold building code standards for health and safety. Each facility must be approved by the local certified building department.[11,12]

You can use the Health Care Provider Search tool to view details on a given facility. Look up a particular facility’s inspection report by selecting the category of care provider from the drop-down menu. Then, you can narrow your search by entering the county, city, organization’s name, or any information you have for the corresponding fields. Note that while Ohio does show whether an assisted living community’s license is active, it does not reveal the full report as the tool implies.

To find details on assisted living and long-term care facilities in Kentucky, use the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services Nursing Home Survey Inspection Findings Search tool by following the link for the relevant year and then entering the facility’s name and relevant details into the corresponding search fields. Note that while Kentucky’s search tool shows some complaints or other inspection results for some care facility types, it does not reveal specific inspection findings of assisted living facilities.

COVID-19 regulations for Cincinnati assisted living facilities

Most COVID-19 restrictions in both Ohio and Kentucky have been lifted. However, Ohio assisted living facilities are recommended to implement precautionary measures in accordance with CDC guidelines. Kentucky similarly follows CDC guidelines, particularly COVID-19 by county recommendations, updating guidelines based on the number of COVID-19 cases in each county.

The general guidelines for Cincinnati assisted living communities may include the following:

An illustration of a list with a check mark

Testing. Staff and residents of assisted living facilities should be tested for COVID-19 if they’re experiencing symptoms or if they have had exposure to someone who has tested positive.

An illustration of a protective breathing mask

Masking. Masks should be worn by individuals who are immunocompromised, by individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, and by health care workers caring for COVID-positive patients.

Transportation for seniors in Cincinnati

Out of A Place for Mom’s partnered Cincinnati independent living communities, 81% offer complimentary and/or at-cost transportation services. Prescheduled transportation may be free, while on-demand rides may have an additional cost, depending on the individual community.

Downtown Cincinnati is quite walkable, and most errands can be accomplished without a car. As your loved one gets further from the city center, however, they may want to rely on a vehicle or public transit. For enjoying some downtown entertainment, they can take the free Cincinnati streetcar, which loops through the heart of the city.

Cincinnati’s public transportation system is called Go Metro. Go Metro covers several bus routes, and your loved one can explore routes in the Cincinnati area or search by popular destinations. Go Metro’s buses are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), so Ohio residents with disabilities can ride, even with a wheelchair or a service animal. If a person’s disability makes buses inaccessible even with these accommodations, they can instead use Cincinnati’s Access rideshare program, which offers vans designed specifically for passengers with special needs.

Downtown Cincinnati is considered a “walker’s paradise” by Walkscore.com, which awards it the following transportation ratings out of 100:[15]
