How Do You Pay For Assisted Living in Illinois?
Care in a Illinois 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.
Medicaid in the state of Illinois may help to cover assisted living through the Illinois HCBS Waiver for Supportive Living Facilities. Basic guidelines require applicants to be an Illinois resident age 65 or older (or if younger than 65, they must be disabled), assessed and found to be in need of nursing home level of care, and financially eligible for Medicaid coverage (income and asset limits).
