We Accept Medicaid
It is important to take care of ourselves and our elders, and at some point, this can mean considering assisted living or a memory care community. The Grove and Gardens offers both. We understand a lot goes into this type of decision. One thing that we feel is important to keep in mind is how the care is being paid for. Which is why we accept Medicaid and many other payment options.
Some facilities can be expensive and certain health care insurance doesn’t include long-term care coverage for an assisted living community or a memory care community. At The Grove and Gardens, we accept a large range of payment methods and health care plans, including Medicaid.
What is the difference between Medicare and Medicaid?
Medicare is a program provided by the federal government. It provides health coverage for citizens 65+ and can also provide coverage for people under 65 with a disability. Medicare doesn’t restrict eligibility based on income.
Medicaid is both a state and federal program that’s eligibility is based on income. Medicaid requirements range given on the state you live. In Oregon, the state Medicaid is provided through a program called the Oregon Health Plan (OHP). To learn more about the qualifiers visit the OHP website.
Medicare and Medicaid are not mutually exclusive, meaning you can have coverage from both at the same time. Having combined coverage can be extremely helpful. For example, Medicare does not cover the costs of assisted living or other long-term care facilities. Medicaid, on the other hand, has coverage for some of these facilities.
