How people pay for assisted living in Cleveland

Cleveland seniors can combine personal funds and public assistance options to help cover the cost of assisted living. To find the best way to cover rent and care in assisted living, start with an assessment of your loved one’s unique financial position.

Private pay methods

If your loved one has the resources, they may be able to cover Cleveland assisted living care costs using private pay methods. Private pay methods can consist of any type of income or assets, such as savings, Social Security benefits, pensions, investment returns, and any of the following:

VA benefits
16300

Number of veterans who live in Cleveland as of 2021

About 76% of Cleveland veterans are 55+.

If your loved one served in the U.S. military, they may qualify for benefits offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that can help cover living and care expenses. Veterans pension benefits and additional stipends like the Aid and Attendance benefit offer supplemental monthly income to senior veterans and their surviving spouses.[03]

Getting assistance from veterans service officers

Before beginning your application, it’s important to know that applying for veterans benefits can be a challenging task. Your loved one may qualify and still be denied eligibility because of a mistake on their application, which is why assistance can be highly beneficial.

However, there are resources available to help your loved one receive the benefits they’re entitled to. A local veterans service officer can help your loved one apply successfully. Veterans service officers are fellow veterans who are trained and certified in benefits offerings. They can help Ohio senior veterans get the most out of their eligibility. Your loved one can also visit the local VA field office to receive help with their VA benefits application.

Additional assistance with VA benefits

To get more support with receiving veterans benefits, you and your loved one can go to the Ohio Department of Veterans Services webpage or contact your local VA office. On the Ohio Attorney General website, find information on community resources for veterans, such as the following:

  • Financial and housing assistance
  • Legal advocacy and advice
  • Rehabilitation services

The VA works with nonprofit veterans service organizations (VSOs) in each state that serve veterans’ needs. Below, find information on Cleveland VSOs, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, and other resources.

Medicaid

Medicaid is a federal- and state-funded health insurance program for Americans with disabilities or low incomes. The Medicaid program in each state is a bit different, but all Medicaid programs are required to follow federal guidelines. The Medicaid program in Ohio is simply called Ohio Medicaid. To receive Ohio Medicaid benefits, your loved one will need to be enrolled in a managed care organization (MCO), and the agency providing the care services must be contracted with that MCO. Ohio Medicaid has programs that can be used to cover care services in Cleveland assisted living.

Assisted Living Medicaid waiver

Ohio Medicaid’s Assisted Living Waiver program, as the name suggests, is designed for qualified Ohio residents in an assisted living community. Recipients of the Assisted Living waiver are responsible for covering the costs of room and board using their own income or other financial resources, but the waiver will support coverage for care services in their assisted living community.

The Ohio Assisted Living Medicaid waiver covers 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
  • Nursing care
  • Housekeeping, laundry, and meal services
  • Recreational programs

Community transitional services typically involve relocating a senior from a skilled nursing facility to an assisted living community. Transport of their furniture and other household items generally fall under this service, as well.[04]

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid waivers provide medical coverage for eligible seniors and individuals who have qualifying disabilities. To qualify for ABD Medicaid, your loved one must meet Medicaid’s basic eligibility requirements and one of the following additional criteria:

ABD Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of medical care, as well as some long-term care services.[05]

Ohio Medicaid PASSPORT waiver

Ohio residents aged 60 and over may qualify for the PASSPORT waiver. The PASSPORT waiver is a home and community based services waiver for seniors in need of a nursing facility level of care. Eligible seniors who would prefer not to transfer to skilled nursing care can use this waiver to cover the cost of care in their own home, an assisted living community, or other senior living facility.

PASSPORT waiver recipients can use it to cover costs of services such as the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living and housekeeping
  • Nutritional guidance and meal services
  • Adult day and respite care
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Medical equipment

PASSPORT waivers include general Medicaid coverage, which can be used for other medical expenses such as prescription medications, doctor visits, and hospitalization.[06]

If your loved one is an Ohio Medicaid recipient, their care can be managed 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 also provide advice and advocacy on your loved one’s rights as a resident in senior living.

Medicare

Medicare is a federally funded health insurance program for Americans 65 or older and individuals with qualifying disabilities. Medicare has multiple parts that cover different types of health care, including the following:

  • Skilled nursing care and hospital stays
  • Doctors’ appointments, medical services, and medical supplies
  • Prescription medications

Medicare cannot be used to pay for room and board at an assisted living community; however, it will cover many of the costs associated with medical treatment, including dementia care. Access more information on Medicare coverage by visiting the federal Medicare website or by contacting one of your local Ohio Social Security Administration offices. Qualified Ohio residents may get additional help paying for Medicare deductibles and premiums through Medicare Savings Programs.

The U.S. Social Security Administration can help your loved one receive access to Medicare support. If your loved one is eligible for dual enrollment in Medicare and Medicaid, they can pay Medicare premiums using their Medicaid benefits. A local long-term care ombudsman can help your loved one access the benefits they qualify for and advocate for their rights, as well as investigate long-term care recipients’ complaints and help ensure that seniors receive the quality of care they deserve. Find links to these resources below.

Understand Ohio laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

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

Ohio assisted living staff requirements

Unlike some states, Ohio has no minimum staff requirements for assisted living facilities. However, Ohio does require assisted living facilities to employ the following personnel:

  • An administrator who manages the facility’s operations. The administrator must be on the premises a minimum of 20 hours per week, and they must be on call at all times when off-site.
  • Direct care staff. If personal care services are offered on-site, the facility must have at least one staff member trained in first aid present at all times.
  • Medical staff. If medication administration is offered, the facility must have a registered nurse, a physician, or a licensed nurse practitioner on staff who is certified in medication administration.
  • Specialized memory care staff. If the facility has residents with late-stage cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s or dementia, there must be a psychologist or physician either on staff or contracted with the facility.

Ohio assisted living personnel must go through proper training for their responsibilities, as outlined in Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3701-16-06.

Ohio assisted living service requirements

Ohio assisted living facilities are required to provide residents with the following:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and toileting
  • Recreational and social activities
  • Housekeeping, laundry, and linen services
  • Either three daily meals or food-safe storage for residents to store and prepare their own meals

Ohio assisted living building standards

Ohio assisted living facilities must be approved by the local certified building department to ensure that they uphold building code standards for health and safety.

Ohio assisted living facilities must keep their plumbing, electrical, and sanitation systems in safe and working order. They must maintain fire and carbon monoxide safety, have evacuation and disaster preparedness plans in place, and regularly perform and document evacuation drills.[07]

To find details on a Cleveland assisted living or other senior care facility, use the Health Care Provider Search tool. You can search a particular facility by choosing the category of care provider from the drop-down menu. Further refine your search results by typing 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 or memory care facility’s license is active, it does not reveal the full inspection report.

COVID-19 regulations for Cleveland assisted living facilities

As COVID-19 cases have decreased, there are no statewide COVID-19 regulations in Ohio at this time. Ohio assisted living facilities are, however, recommended to implement precautionary measures against COVID-19 in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
