Paying for Services
If you wondering how to pay for in-home care, please keep in mind that there are many options available to you. Based on your loved ones situation is it critical that you take the time to research the options below to find the most effective option to pay for care.
Individuals may pay for home care privately on a two week pay schedule by using check, money order, debit or credit cards, when they don't qualify for Medicaid, veterans' benefit or have long term care insurance. There are commons ways to achieve the funds needed to cover private pay expenses such as; social security benefits, pensions, savings, a home equity loan, or reverse mortgages. We also have additional resources listed below to help reduce the financial burden of caring for a loved one.
Long Term Care Insurance
The first step is to determine if he or she has a long-term care insurance plan. Most policies cover home care but not all. Home care coverage depends on the terms and conditions of the individual policy. To learn more, give us a call at 1-866-757-5858 to discuss your long term care policy.
