How Do You Pay For Assisted Living in Colorado?
Care in a Colorado assisted living community is typically paid for by a resident’s private funds (e.g. savings, 401(k), pension, Social Security, etc.), long-term care insurance, and in some cases, VA benefits.
The Home and Community-Based Services Waiver for those who are Elderly, Blind, or Disabled (EBD) provides assistance to individuals who require long-term support in order to remain living in the community and avoid placement in a nursing facility. Assisted living services are included in the EBD waiver’s benefits. This program is available to people who are ages 65 and older and have a functional impairment or are blind, and adults ages 18-64 who are physically disabled or have been diagnosed with HIV or AIDS. Additional financial limitations also apply. Eligible persons must receive less than $2,199 per month in income. Single individuals must not have more than $2,000 in countable resources, and a couple's countable resources must not exceed $3,000.
