Paying for Care: The Hermitage is strictly a private pay facility. Many long term care insurances cover assisted living when the resident meets the criteria of their individual policy. The Hermitage is licensed by the State of Maryland, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the Office of Health Care Quality. This qualifies us to be recognized by your long term care insurance. Medicare only pays for skilled days in a long term care facility if the resident qualifies. Medicare does not cover assisted living. The Medicaid Waiver Program is a program in the state of Maryland that a few assisted living programs do participate in currently. The Hermitage does not participate in this program. The Veterans Administration has several programs for veterans and/or their spouses who served during World War II to help with payment to assisted living. Assistance for application for these programs can gotten from the Veterans Administration.
