How to Prepare for Long-term Care

Question: I am 55 years old and I have spent the past year helping my father transition into an assisted living community. The process has been difficult, not to mention expensive. Along the way, I learned about the Arizona Long Term Care System program, and I wish I would have known about it from the outset. What can I do now to help me prepare for ALTCS in case I need long-term care myself?

Long-term Care Denials Not Permanent

Question: My father was hospitalized about a year ago and the hospital social worker filed an Arizona Long Term Care System application on his behalf, but ALTCS denied the application. Recently, we started looking for longterm placement for my father, but discovered that such placement is extremely expensive. What are our options?

Differences in Medicare and ALTCS

Question: Why do I need to even consider Arizona Long Term Care System when I have Medicare? After paying into the Medicare system for my entire career, shouldn’t Medicare cover my medical expenses? I don’t understand why I need to apply for ALTCS when I am already insured.

ALTCS Has a Network of Facilities

Question: My mother has lived in the same assisted living community for three years, and we both really like most everything about her accommodations. After three years of paying for care, however, mom is just about out of money, and we need to find some assistance to keep her where she is at. If mom applies for Arizona Long Term Care System will she have to move to a special ALTCS facility?

Things to Know About Long-Term Care

Question: I am in the process of helping my father apply for Arizona Long Term Care System. How long will it take to process, and if the application is approved, will ALTCS pay us back for the costs we incur while the application processes?
