Comprehensive medical and nursing care are benefits of the LIFE program.

Benefits of the LIFE Program

Senior LIFE coordinates all Medicare and Medicaid Services

Once a person enrolls in Senior LIFE, all approved Medicare- and Medicaid-covered services are provided through the program. These services are designed to meet the health needs of members, but the benefits of the LIFE program don’t stop there. The LIFE program is designed to meet the medical, social and spiritual needs specific to each member.

Senior LIFE Provides Prescription Medication Coverage at No Cost

This means that members receive all medications, including those covered by Part D, through Senior LIFE. There’s no need to travel to outside pharmacies or deal with the headaches of insurance. There are no copays, no deductibles, and no cost for medications for any member of Senior LIFE.

Senior LIFE Supports Family Caregivers

We understand that being a caregiver is full of challenges. You likely have questions, worries, and fears about how to best care for your loved one. Senior LIFE helps to alleviate those fears. We partner with caregivers to provide quality care for their loved ones and give much-needed help, support, and peace of mind. 

Senior LIFE Provides Person-Centered Care

Health is personal. That’s why when it comes to making decisions about a member’s care, members and their caregivers are always involved. Our team meets face-to-face with members at the local LIFE center to help determine a plan that best meets their individual needs. Every aspect of their care is personalized and the care plan changes as the member’s needs change. 

Senior LIFE Emphasizes Prevention

Our primary goal is to help members live independently in the community for as long as possible. To make that possible, we focus on preventive care, including regular medical checkups and screenings.

Senior LIFE Provides Transportation

Whether a member needs transportation to the Senior LIFE Center or to other medical appointments within the community, free transportation is available. Senior LIFE provides ‘through-the-door’ transportation to the LIFE Center, to all medical appointments, and across all healthcare settings. Our trained transportation team ensures that members make it safely to each destination.

All services with the exception of emergency care are provided and/or coordinated by Senior LIFE and must be approved. Participants may be responsible for the cost of any unauthorized services used outside the network with the exception of emergency care.

Better Outcomes for Seniors

Because aging comes with challenges, it can sometimes seem like a nursing home or assisted living facility is the only option. Senior LIFE offers a different solution—one with clear benefits.

  1. LIFE members spend fewer days in the hospital and in nursing homes.3 We help members stay at home longer through a combination of in-home care and Senior LIFE Center services.
  2. LIFE members are more likely to maintain their physical function.2
  3. LIFE members are more likely to report satisfaction with life and a higher quality of life than those in other programs.5
  4. LIFE members rarely unenroll from the program, which generally means they are satisfied with the care they are receiving.1, 4
  5. Senior LIFE is a recognized provider under Medicare and Medicaid and is an authorized option under Community HealthChoices.

All services with the exception of emergency care are provided and/or coordinated by Senior LIFE and must be approved. Participants may be responsible for the cost of any unauthorized services used outside the network with the exception of emergency care.
