Affordability & Insurance

Medical billing can be confusing.

When considering skilled nursing care for yourself or a loved one, understanding the costs and the various insurance coverages may seem overwhelming. You may not know what your private insurance or Medicare covers, or if you will need additional insurance coverage. It can be difficult to navigate the insurance waters so that you can get the care you need.

You may be wondering what part of care will be covered by insurance, or if you’ll have out-of-pocket expenses. And, you may be concerned about how you might be able to protect your assets while paying for your skilled nursing care.

The Masonic Care Community will help you understand all the costs associated with your care.

Prior to admission, we will have confirmed with your insurance carrier the limits and requirements of your individual plan. This information is shared with you within the first couple of days of admission. This is an excellent time to tell us of any other coverage you may have to help with payment. We would be happy to explore all other insurance coverage you have available and help you with this process.

Community room, with people talking.

We will tell you about additional costs and how you can get additional assistance.

At the Masonic Care Community, we are committed to transparency. We’re always upfront with our residents and their families about out-of-pocket expenses. If medical services threaten to deplete all of your assets, we can assist you in applying for Title XIX (Medicaid). Our financial office and case managers can be helpful in this application process.

Out of pocket expenses may include additional fees for the professional services of:

  • Your attending physician
  • Specialists
  • X-ray
  • Dialysis
  • Dental
  • Podiatrist
  • Audiologist
  • Optometrist

At the Masonic Care Community, we want to help you understand insurance and affordability when it comes to your care.
