WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CCRC AND AN OWNERSHIP COMMUNITY?
The primary difference between ownership communities and CCRCs like Ventana is that ownership communities typically do not include assisted living or skilled nursing care. In addition, ownership communities may not offer a continuum of care conveniently available on-site like a CCRC. Residents in an ownership community are also responsible for the resale of their home and for payment of the community’s monthly service fee until their home is resold, even after they have moved out.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CCRC AND A RENTAL COMMUNITY?
The primary difference between CCRCs and rental communities is that rental communities typically do not include assisted living or skilled nursing care. If a resident develops the need for these services, the cost of care is entirely the resident’s responsibility. Also, since these additional services are not available on-site, those requiring care may need to move at their greatest time of need, whereas these services would always be available at a continuing care retirement community.
Another key difference is that rental communities are not subject to the same oversight and regulation as CCRCs. The Texas Department of Insurance is charged with monitoring the financial solvency of Ventana.
HOW IS A CCRC REGULATED?
The Texas Department of Insurance is responsible for regulating the state’s CCRCs. In Texas, a CCRC offers a continuing care contract that includes a promise to provide one or more elements of care in exchange for the payment of an entrance fee, often partially refundable, and periodic charges, such as a monthly service fee. CCRCs typically offer three accommodations: independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care. The entrance and monthly service fees either partially or fully cover the cost of assisted living and skilled nursing care.
