FreqUently Asked Questions

From membership fees to future care, we’ve got answers to all your questions about Meadowood Life Plan at Home.

Is the membership fee refundable?

The membership fee is amortized. It goes away 10% the first month, then 2% every month after that taking about four years to fully amortize away. Should you exit the program during the amortization period, the balance of the membership fee is returned to you

Are the fees tax deductible?

Because it is considered a medical service, both the entrance fee and the monthly fee is 100% tax deductible, off your medical tax deduction.

Are there any hidden fees?

There really are no hidden fees. You will incur costs associated with your home, of course, because you’re staying in place, as well as other costs such as meals. This is in contrast to those who sell their home and move into Meadowood who exchange those costs for those related to life on campus.

Must I go to Meadowood if I need personal care or nursing care?

No, you can go wherever you like. Under this plan, Meadowood’s benefits include care at the facility of your choice. Members may relocate out of state and take the benefits along with them.

Who decides if and when I must move to a facility?

The goal of the program is to keep you at home through the aging process if that is your goal. We have all the tools and skills needed to keep you in your home as long as possible.

What if my spouse does not medically qualify but I do?

We do have a lot of members where this is the case. This is an amazing caregiver support program. In many of these cases, care needs of the ailing spouse drain the assets of the couple.

When the healthy spouse requires care 10 or 15 years down the road, the assets may be dramatically limited. It’s important to first protect yourself financially; then you can open up the assets to the ailing spouse. Your Life Plan Coordinator is there to help you manage it all.

You can continue your independent lifestyle at home.
