Nursing Home and Home Health-Care Costs
This appendix shows the costs of nursing homes and home health care across the country. The nursing home costs are shown as a daily rate. Nursing home costs indicated with an asterisk (*) reflect a different pricing structure in that market than in others (for example, some didn’t differentiate between private and semiprivate rooms, and some showed different care levels). The survey was conducted by MetLife’s Mature Market Institute and released in early 2002. Though it includes data from 482 nursing homes, not all ZIP code areas in each state are represented.
