Type A versus Type C Payment Structures

While ideally potential residents should apply to a CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community also known as a LifePlan community) when they are in good health, it is possible that a couple may have one person in slightly less good health when an application goes in.  If this is the case you may have better success with Type C facilities versus Type A facilities.  Type A facilities tend to have tougher medical qualifications versus Type C facilities.  With Type C facilities the monthly fee increases when assisted or nursing care is required.  With Type A facilities the monthly fee does not increase at assisted or nursing periods.  Type C's may be able to be more forgiving with a few health problems due to this payment factor.
