Payer sources for senior living, nine ways

Billing Alert for Long-Term Care

Senior living (also referred to as assisted living) is a cash-reliant industry, often paid for by the residents themselves. In contrast to nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities, Medicare is not generally an option for senior living facilities because these companies do not address the skill level of nursing care facilities. Nevertheless, even though senior living care is technically less expensive than skilled nursing home care, it is far from being cheap. In 2016, the national average for assisted living was $3,628 per month. However, senior living care can vary considerably from approximately $3,000 to up to $8,000 each month. The variation in price is often reflective of geographic regions and the extent of offerings found in the senior living facility.
