Does Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?
Families often have questions about whether Medicare pays for Assisted Living costs. The short answer is no, Medicare does not cover assisted living costs. But there are other insurance and benefit programs, such as Long Term Care Insurance and the Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Benefit, that can help. And some states have Medicaid Programs, such as Massachusetts’ Group Adult Foster Care Program.
