Do all facilities accept Medicare and/or Medicaid reimbursement for care?

Many skilled nursing and intermediate care facilities accept Medicare and/or Medicaid reimbursement, but residential care facilities do not. However, residential care facility residents may be eligible for state assistance through the Supplemental Nursing Care grant. In addition residential care facilities may participate in the Medicaid Personal Care Program. The Personal Care Program offers Medicaid-eligible residents assistance with activities of daily living. This program provides residential care residents an alternative to nursing facility care.
