For some types of senior care in Pflugerville, such as home care, the difference is relatively minor. For others, such as adult day care, costs to seniors in Pflugerville are nearly double the state average, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Across all categories of senior care, seniors in Pflugerville consistently pay above the state average, though some cities in Texas report still higher costs.

Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Pflugerville, so the data for the closest city, Austin, was used.

No other city in Texas has a higher reported average cost for assisted living by a wide margin. The nearest prices to be found in Texas are in the middle of the $4,000 range, such as in San Angelo, Arlington and Frisco. Monthly prices in the former average $4,450, while the latter two both report $4,350 a month. Assisted living is relatively affordable in Texarkana and El Paso, which report some of the state’s lowest assisted living costs, at $2,265 and $2,250, respectively.

How much does Home Care Cost in Pflugerville?

Home care in Pflugerville costs seniors an average of $4,099 a month. This is just under $300 a month more than the Texas average cost of $3,813. Arlington and Frisco both report costs that are close to what Pflugerville seniors pay, at $4,004 a month for each of them. El Paso and Texarkana’s reported rates for home care are among the lowest in Texas, at $3,041 and $3,022, respectively. These cities both average more than $1,000 less per month than Pflugerville’s cost for home care, and both are well below the state average.

Financial Assistance Programs in Pflugerville

Medicaid Program in Pflugerville

Pflugerville seniors who need help paying the cost of medical and residential care can apply for coverage through the Texas Medicaid program. Medicaid in Texas is an entitlement program, which means it accepts all qualified applicants, with no waiting periods or enrollment caps for the year. Medicaid in Texas pays the cost of basic and urgent medical care, plus some prescription drugs and residential care in a facility. Some residency and income requirements do apply before coverage can be approved.

To qualify for Texas Medicaid, seniors in Pflugerville must be citizens or legal residents of the United States and reside permanently in the state of Texas. Single adults applying for themselves must earn less than $24,037 a year from all income sources combined. This includes wages from work, pension income and returns on investments. Married couples are allowed up to $32,591 a year on the same terms. For each additional adult who lives in the household, Texas Medicaid permits an extra $8,554 per year to be earned without penalty, regardless of whether the other adults are also applying for benefits.Pflugerville seniors who wish to sign up for Medicaid may submit their applications in person or by mail to a Travis County Health and Human Services office. Application packets can be requested online or they can be completed and submitted in their entirety at the YourTexasBenefits website.

Medicaid Waivers in Pflugerville

Texas STAR+PLUS

Pflugerville seniors can get help with the monthly costs of assisted living through the Texas STAR+PLUS waiver. To qualify for a waiver, seniors in Pflugerville must be approved for Medicaid and have medical clearance for admission to a nursing home facility. Seniors who receive a STAR+PLUS waiver can opt out of nursing home care and choose instead to move into assisted living.

Seniors can apply for a STAR+PLUS waiver with their Medicaid caseworker or through the benefits specialist at a participating assisted living facility. Eligibility requirements for this waiver are somewhat different from those required for Medicaid. Seniors who wish to apply for STAR+PLUS must be at least age 65 and be either citizens or legal residents of the United States. Seniors must earn less than $2,250 a month, or $27,000 a year. Countable assets are limited to a maximum of $2,000. Some assets are not counted against this limit, such as personal possessions, a single car, furniture and other privately held items. The first $572,000 in equity on a single home is also exempt from the asset requirement.

Intake workers consider assets that have been owned over a five-year look-back period. Any large bequests during this period are considered countable assets for eligibility purposes. Seniors in Pflugerville who have trouble meeting the income or asset limitations of the STAR+PLUS program can meet with a certified senior adviser or Medicaid planner to prepare their finances before applying for the waiver.

STAR+PLUS offers direct support for several benefits aside from assisted living admissions. For seniors in Pflugerville who decide to opt out of all residential care and instead remain at home, the STAR+PLUS program offers:

  • Caregiver assistance in the home
  • Some home improvements, such as accessibility and safety upgrades like ramps and rails
  • Protective supervision in the home for seniors with dementia and other cognitive issues
  • Adult day care, which may be provided in the senior’s home or at a nearby facility

Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)

The Texas HCBS program supports Pflugerville seniors with vouchers that pay many of the costs of independent living at home. Seniors can apply through a Medicaid caseworker or via the discharge planner at the last residential care facility they lived in. Some of the benefits HCBS pays for include:

  • Residential care services, including group or family-based care and live-in services
  • Respite care in the senior’s home or at a local facility
  • At-home nursing care services, including wound care and visits from an RN
  • Access and safety upgrades to the home, with prior approval
  • Transportation vouchers for bus and rail service in the Austin area, as well as help booking and paying for non-emergency medical transportation within a reasonable radius of Pflugerville

Texas Home Living (TxHmL)

Seniors with certain mental or cognitive conditions may continue to live safely on their own with help from the TxHmL program. This program is administered by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services, which distributes funds from the state to a network of nonprofit organizations in and around the Pflugerville area. Some of the benefits available for seniors in Pflugerville include:

  • Home-based nursing care
  • Respite care, both in the senior’s home and at local facilities
  • Some home modifications, such as weatherization
  • Transportation vouchers for both public and private transit services
  • Disposable and durable medical supplies, such as wheelchairs, braces and other adaptive aids

Seniors can apply for TxHmL directly through the Department of Aging and Disability Services, or through the discharge planner at the residential care facility a senior is transitioning out of. Applicants must be eligible for Medicaid and have a diagnosis of an age-related cognitive disorder, such as Alzheimer’s disease or some form of dementia.

Other Financial Assistance Programs

Texas Support Services

Seniors in Pflugerville can get in-home support from a caregiver through Texas Support Services. This program pays the expense of a caregiver who can assist eligible seniors with certain activities of daily living and some errands outside of the home. Because the program is recipient directed, seniors can designate almost anyone of their choice as a caregiver, including a spouse, family member or friend.

To qualify for Support Services, seniors must meet the income and asset guidelines of Medicaid and have a diagnosed disability that limits their ability to function at home. Recognized disabilities include physical and mental health issues, including drug and alcohol dependency.

Seniors in Pflugerville can apply for Texas Support Services by mail or in person at a Travis County Area Agency on Aging. Applications can also be submitted through a senior’s Medicaid caseworker.

Community Care for the Aged/Disabled (CCAD)

Seniors in Pflugerville can get help paying some of the costs of independent living and home care through Community Care for the Aged/Disabled (CCAD). CCAD picks up several miscellaneous costs seniors in Pflugerville are likely to face when living at home or in part-time care. Applications for CCAD can be submitted in person or by mail through the Austin-area Aging and Disability Resource Center, or seniors can apply online.

Community Attendant Services (CAS)

Seniors in Pflugerville can get assistance in their homes from Community Attendant Services (CAS) caregivers. CAS caregivers can work with a senior who lives in a private home, the home of a friend or family member or a family-based care facility. Spouses, family members and friends can all be caregivers. Both seniors and prospective caregivers can request information about CAS or apply for benefits online.
