Ways to Pay for Home Care Services

There are many ways to pay home care aside from private pay. These are some of them.

Long Term Care Insurance

Some long term care insurance pays for skilled, medical care and also for in-home non-medical, non-skilled custodial care depending on what you have on your policy. They sometimes require a certain number of activities of daily living and an   assessment or evaluation from a case manager or a registered nurse referred by the insurance company, and the home care agency provider needs to be licensed. To make sure you are covered and can be reimbursed for the assistance that you need, call your insurance company. We can help you call your insurance company to check if your policy can cover the service that we provide.

Life Insurance Policy Conversions

All whole, term, or universal life insurance policies can all be converted into a Long-Term Care Benefit Plan Account. Then transfer the ownership of the policy to an entity that is  a benefits administrator, who will assume responsibilities for payments. To convert, the previous policy holder must have immediate need for some acceptable type of long-term care, and arranges monthly payouts to help cover for home care services. Payouts are directly made to the provider (home care agency), and not to the previous policy owner. This is an acceptable Medicaid spend-down strategy.

Family Agrees to Share the Expenses

Family members can share the cost of their loved ones’  home care expense. If one family member will be the caregiver, hours and wages must be spelled out clearly in an agreement to prevent tension, resentment or conflicts in the end.  Their contribution maybe reimbursed later on if they have an expected inheritance or proceeds from the sale of assets. Keep invoices, receipts or cancelled checks for record keeping to show executor of the will to be paid for these things. To avoid certain tax liabilities and family conflicts, it is best to hire a caregiver from a licensed home care agency.

Medicare, Medicaid and VA Home Care

Public Benefit like Medicaid and Medicare is for low income and having a few assets other than the home he or she lives in. There is a VA Home Care Assistance benefits, that would  pay a certain amount in a month. PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) on the other hand is a Medicare and Medicaid program that helps people meet their health care needs in the community instead of going to a nursing home or other care facility. It not available to all states. It is best to inquire if there is an available benefit for you or your loved one in your area through the Department of Aging.
