PLANNING YOUR STAY
As a provincially approved Long-Term Care home, the Hôpital de Smooth Rock Falls Hospital LTC Unit rates are established annually by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care rather than by us. Rates are the same for all Long-Term Care Homes in Ontario. They are based on changes in the payment entitlements of Old Age Security (OAS), the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), and the Guaranteed Annual Income Supplement (GAINS).
The table below outlines the daily and monthly rates for each type of accommodation. A daily rate is charged for a partial month. The monthly rate is charged for a full month regardless of the number of days in a month.
|Type of Accommodation||Daily||Monthly|
|Basic Accommodation||$58,99||$1 794,28|
|Private Accommodation||$76,35||$2 322,32|
BASIC ACCOMMODATION RATE REDUCTION
Residents living in basic accommodations, who cannot afford to pay the full co-payment fee, may be eligible to have their LTC co-payment amount reduced. This is known as a rate reduction.
If a resident wishes to apply for a rate reduction while already living in a LTC home, they may ask the LTC Manger for information on the application process. For additional information, see MOHLTC Rate Reduction Summary Guide available at the nursing station. A Revenue Canada Notice of Assessment is required before a rate reduction can be approved.
