How people pay for assisted living in Columbus, Ohio

Columbus residents can combine several private and public assistance options to help pay for assisted living. An assessment of your loved one’s unique financial circumstances will help you determine the best way to pay for room, board, and personal care in assisted living.

Private pay methods in Columbus

If they have the resources, your loved one may be able to fund assisted living care in Columbus through private pay methods. 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 for assisted living in Columbus

If your loved one is a U.S. military veteran, they may be able to receive financial support from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that can help cover the cost of an assisted living community. Veterans pension benefits, such as the Aid and Attendance benefit, can help senior veterans and their surviving spouses improve their quality of life with supplemental income.[03]

Veterans service officers

The application process for veterans benefits can be challenging. Even for eligible veterans, successfully applying usually requires assistance or advocacy. You can receive assistance and referrals from veteran service officers in your area by visiting one of the Ohio Department of Veterans’ Affairs field offices. As fellow veterans who are trained and certified in benefits offerings, veteran service officers are available to help Ohio senior veterans get the most out of their eligibility.

Additional assistance with VA benefits

You can visit the Ohio Department of Veterans Services webpage or contact the local VA office for assistance with finding veterans benefits. The Ohio Attorney General website offers information on additional community resources for veterans, including the following:

  • Financial support
  • Legal advocacy
  • Housing assistance
  • Rehabilitation

The VA oversees Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) in each state, including specialized departments for aiding veterans with disabilities and veterans of foreign wars. Find information on Columbus Veteran Service Organizations below.

Columbus, Ohio, Medicaid for assisted living

Medicaid is a federal- and state-funded program that offers medical insurance coverage to Americans with disabilities or low incomes. While each state’s Medicaid program varies, all Medicaid programs must follow federal guidelines. Ohio’s Medicaid program is simply named Ohio Medicaid. To receive Medicaid benefits in Ohio, your loved one must 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 an assisted living community.

Assisted Living Medicaid waiver

Ohio Medicaid offers an Assisted Living Waiver program which, as the name suggests, is intended to provide coverage for qualified Ohio residents in an assisted living community. The Assisted Living Medicaid waiver will cover costs associated with personal care and medical care, but room and board costs will need to be covered by the senior’s income or other financial resources.

The Ohio Assisted Living Medicaid waiver can be used to cover 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

Community transitional services typically consist of moving a senior from a skilled nursing facility to an assisted living community, including moving their furniture and other household belongings.[04]

Ohio Medicaid PASSPORT waiver

The PASSPORT waiver is for Ohio residents age 60 and over. Eligible seniors can use this waiver to cover the cost of care in their own home, an assisted living community, or another senior living facility instead of moving into a skilled nursing facility.

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

  • Personal care, such as assistance with activities of daily living, housekeeping, and meal preparation
  • Nutritional guidance and meal delivery
  • Adult day services
  • Transport to medical appointments
  • Medical equipment

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

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid

Aged, Blind, or Disabled (ABD) Medicaid offers coverage for seniors and individuals with qualifying disabilities. To qualify for ABD Medicaid, Ohio residents must meet Medicaid’s basic eligibility requirements and one of the following criteria:

Qualifying individuals can use ABD Medicaid to cover the costs of medical care, as well as some long-term care services.[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 assisted living coverage in Columbus

Medicare is a federally funded program designed to extend health coverage to Americans 65 or older and individuals with qualifying disabilities. 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

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

The U.S. Social Security Administration can help seniors receive access to Medicare support. Your loved one may be eligible for dual enrollment 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. A long-term care ombudsman can also investigate complaints of long-term care residents 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

Assisted living facilities, or residential care facilities as they are designated in Ohio, 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]

A residential care facility is defined as one of the following:

  • A facility offering accommodations and care for a minimum of 17 residents who are not related to one another
  • A facility offering accommodations and care services to three or more unrelated persons who are dependent on these services and offering skilled nursing to at least one resident

Ohio assisted living staff requirements

While there are no minimum staff requirements for residential care facilities in Ohio, facilities are required to employ the following types of personnel:

  • 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.
  • If the facility offers personal care, there must be one member of the direct care staff 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.[07]

Staff in Ohio assisted living facilities must undergo proper training for their responsibilities, as outlined in Ohio Administrative Code Rule 3701-16-06.

Ohio assisted living service requirements

Ohio assisted living facilities must provide residents with the following services:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living
  • Recreation and social activities
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • Provide either three meals per day or a food-safe storage for residents to take care of their own food[07]

Ohio assisted living building standards

Ohio assisted living facilities must uphold building code standards for health and safety. Each facility must be approved by the local certified building department.

Assisted living facilities are required to have their plumbing, electrical, and sanitation systems in safe and working order. They must comply with fire and carbon monoxide safety, have evacuation and disaster preparedness plans, and perform and document regular evacuation drills.[07]

You can access Ohio senior care facility inspection reports through the Health Care Provider Survey Reports. To look up a particular facility’s inspection report using this tool, select the category of care provider from the drop-down menu, then narrow your search by entering the county, the city, or the name of the specific organization you’re searching for.
