A common misconception is that Medicare will pay for Long Term Care Costs.
Unfortunately, this is just not the case. Although Medicare will cover some Nursing
Home costs, it does so only for a short period after a hospital stay. Many family
members and patients find themselves surprised when they learn this. However,
this reality sticks families with an unexpected need to scramble for ways to pay for Long Term Nursing Care.
This usually means they have to look to personal assets like retirement accounts,
home equity, and personal savings. Other alternative options like Long
Term Care Insurance, Reverse Mortgages, Life Insurance Settlements and so on. However,

Does Medi-Cal Cover The Cost of A Nursing Home In California?
Medi-Cal will cover the cost of Nursing Homes in California. However, Medi-Cal is
a social program specifially designed to help the disadvantaged. We
Know A Place urges all our families to look at Medi-Cal as a safety net
and not the primary way to pay for Long Term Care Costs. To qualify for
Medi-Cal the patient must meet certain income and asset requirements. There is also
a 5 year look-back period to make sure financial assets were not moved to family
Our primary focus at We Know a Place is private pay accounts. This means the family
or elder has the funds to pay for their own care out of pocket or proper private
insurance in place to cover the costs of a California Nursing Home. If you feel
that Medi-Cal is the only option for your family, speak to one of our Senior Care
Advisors. You may have other options available.
