Assisted Living Cost and Payment Options in Montana

The first aspect you must consider when searching for an assisted living facility for your aged loved one in Montana is the cost. The mid-western region in this state is the least expensive, and every other area is comparable to one another in pricing. The state of Montana’s average monthly cost of assisted living is just below the national average of $4,000, at $3,919. The least expensive city for assisted living in Montana is Great Falls at $3,350 per month. Missoula also offers affordable assisted living costs at under $3,900 per month. This pricing does not account for Montana dementia & Alzheimer’s care, which can be $1,000 or more on top of the base cost.

It is also essential to ask the assisted living facilities about the cost of their meals, housing, senior care services, and any other pending fees. It necessary to understand how the prices may be modified in the case that your elderly adult requires additional assistance at a later date. You can pay for the costs of assisted living using long-term care insurance, the personal savings of residents, or funds made available by family members such as yourself. This means you have multiple options to pay for this remarkable service.

There are currently no Medicaid programs that directly supplement assisted living care or retirement home costs, nor are there any Medicaid waivers or non-Medicaid programs we could find that would pay for assisted living. However, a resident of an assisted living facility in Montana that is entitled to Medicaid may enjoy some benefits from a Home and Community Based Services Program that supplements the cost of adult residential care. However, this assistance is somewhat limited in scope. If your loved one is former military personnel, they should get in touch with the Department of Veterans Affairs for additional information on veteran benefits.

There are other options that you or the senior may have earned in their own life that will help cover the cost of assisted living in Montana.

First, for anyone, there are non-profits in each state, including the state of Montana, that may help to supplement the senior for anything they may need including personal care or room and board at an assisted living facility. They typically award cash or grant as a supplement the senior can use as they need.

They too have requirements and sometimes a time cap. If the senior was a public servant such as police and fire or a US military veteran, there could be supplements available. You may also want to look at your own backyard. Can the house be rented out to supplement the senior’s income and help pay for assisted living or senior housing in Montana? Do they have a reverse mortgage to cash into? What about various insurances? Long-term-care insurance will take you in your early to mid-70’s for select companies and will help cover senior living and care costs.

Residents of Category B Montana assisted living facilities need additional nursing assistance from time to time. They are entirely – and consistently – dependent on much-needed aid for at least four activities of day-to-day living. Seniors who are unable to make basic self-care decisions or have cognitive impairments are residents housed in Category C assisted living communities in Montana.
