If You Do Not Pass a CCRC Medical Review, Try Another CCRC

If you don't pass the medical review for a particular CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community also known as a LifePlan community) do not give up.  The medical requirements for CCRCs can and do differ and not passing one review does not mean you will not pass another.  Type A facilities, or those that do not increase your monthly fee if you move to assisted or nursing care, will tend to have more stringent medical requirements.  If needed try to find a Type C facility, where your fee will increase if you move to a higher level of care.  Because you will be supporting the higher level of care the facility may have less stringent medical requirements.  We know of one Type C facility that had a self-disclosure form and a phone call with a nurse with no in-person visit.
