Mission Ridge’s Long Term Care Benefit is available to our members who are on our Value Option payment plan and meet certain eligibility requirements. This benefit will pay up to $18,000.00 toward the cost of assisted living, memory, or skilled nursing care anywhere on the St. John’s Lutheran Ministries campus.
For members who need to transition to assisted living, the benefit pays $500.00/month. For those who need a skilled nursing level of care, it pays $750.00/month.The money can be used by members in any way that they choose, whether it’s to cover a portion of the monthly service fee or for other expenses.
If members already have an insurance policy that covers assisted living or skilled nursing costs, they can still receive the Long Term Care Benefit offered by Mission Ridge. It’s a wonderful way to maintain control of finances if a person’s health needs change.
Since its creation in 1998, Mission Ridge’s Long Term Care Benefit Fund has paid out over $1.4 Million Dollarsto our members to help offset costs at higher levels of care.
