Ten Assisted Living Facilities in Denver that Accept Medicaid

Bar-none, one of the most common questions we receive through our site, Assisted Living Directory, is regarding finding assisted living that accepts Medicaid.
Since Medicaid is a federal program, it is up to each state individually to decide whether Medicaid can be applied to, and cover some of the cost of assisted living. Colorado happens to be one of those few states.
It’s hard to find Medicaid-certified assisted living when you are doing a general search online, which is frustrating. Most facilities don’t advertise their costs, or payment types accepted (especially for Medicaid). In my experiences of speaking with facility owners and administrators, they would much prefer to have a private-pay resident over a Medicaid resident.
For Denver, we’d like to take the guesswork out of it, and offer you 10 facility options in the City that accept Medicaid (called “Medicaid Certified”).
