Payment Options in Cartersville, GA
Here are some of the options you have for paying for care in Cartersville:
Private Pay/Out of Pocket – Most families choose to cover the costs of care out of pocket. While at home care is usually much more affordable than care provided in a nursing home or assisted living facility, the exact costs can only be determined after a care consultation. At Comfort Keepers, we offer low-cost care that can be provided on a part-time, full-time, or 24/7 basis. We also offer a wide range of care plans, including personal care, companionship care, dementia care, respite care, and many others. Please reach out to our local office to learn more and schedule your free consultation.
Long-Term Care Insurance – This type of insurance can cover the costs of care either partially or entirely. However, keep in mind that a senior cannot sign up for long-term care insurance coverage once they develop the need for care; seniors who pay for care with this insurance have typically had coverage for many years. That said, if your loved one does have long-term care insurance, our at home care experts can help with all the paperwork required to apply for coverage.
Veterans Administration (VA) Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit – Veterans and their surviving spouses that meet certain eligibility criteria can pay for care using VA benefits. Because there are many criteria for VA benefits, including serving the army at a time of war and demonstrating the need for care, we recommend that you give us a call and get more details from our at home care coordinators.
Medicaid, Medicare, and State Programs – Please note that Medicare doesn’t cover costs for in home care services. Although Medicare Advantage programs and Medicaid might cover some costs for certain care in different states, Comfort Keepers in Cartersville is not able to accept them at this time.
