Lubbock Assisted Living Financial Assistance

Texas offers financial assistance for seniors to pay for assisted living fees. The waiver is administered through Texas Medicaid and is called the STAR+PLUS HCBS program. To qualify, applicants must be enrolled in Texas Medicaid and demonstrate that they need the level of care that a nursing home offers. With this waiver, however, recipients don’t have to live in a nursing home. Instead, Texas seniors may pay for a home caregiver and health care assistance, or use the waiver monies to pay for accommodations in an assisted living community.
