How Do You Pay For Assisted Living in District of Columbia?
Care in a District of Columbia 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 District of Columbia’s Medicaid program offers an Elderly & Persons with Physical Disabilities Waiver (EPD) to assist individuals at least 65 years of age (or 18 and older diagnosed as having a physical disability) in paying for assisted living and other supportive services. The goal of this waiver is to reduce the number of elderly and disabled individuals who are placed in nursing facilities. Eligible individuals must meet “Level of Care” and financial requirements. For example, an individual must have a monthly income that does not exceed $980.83, and resources that do not exceed $4,000.
