MassHealth at Home
With the rising cost of nursing home care upwards of $12,000 per month, more and more people are staying home and receiving care. Home care, which averages $22 to $34 an hour, can be financially reasonable depending on the number of hours of care that person requires and the level of care needed. However, once the hours and the level of care increase, the costs can skyrocket.
Fortunately, in recent years, MassHealth has been expanding its coverage of care at home. There are several different programs each with their own requirements including Personal Care Attendant (PCA), Adult Foster Care (AFC), Frail Elder Waiver, Program for All Inclusive acre for the Elderly (PACE), and Senior Care Options (SCO).
