Cost

Grandmother and her granddaughter swinging on swings"I’m afraid we won’t be able to afford all the services and care that my loved one needs."

The Summit ElderCare monthly premium is less than the cost of a nursing home, and it offers so much more.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid and private pay. For people eligible for Medicaid, there may be a monthly “spend-down” due to financial criteria. Even if you do pay a monthly spend-down or premium, the cost is less than a nursing home and includes so much more. Participants and caregivers also have the peace of mind of knowing that the premium or “spend-down” amount won’t increase if there’s a change in the participant’s health.

No paperwork and no out-of-pocket expenses

Once an individual is enrolled in Summit ElderCare, there’s no paperwork to fill out and no out-of-pocket expenses or deductibles. Participants don’t require additional health insurance beyond their existing Medicare or Medicaid plans. This also means that you won’t pay extra for recommended services like hospitalizations, prescription drugs, home care, medical supplies and more.
