Many years ago we made a promise to Vashon – when a resident moves into VCC and happens to run out of their life savings, we will not run out on them. We turn to Medicaid to cover our cost of their care. Unfortunately, Medicaid reimbursement rates have remained stagnant since 2007 and cover just 49% of costs for those residents in Assisted Living and 70% for residents in Skilled Nursing. The lack of full reimbursement has caused a yearly funding gap.
We Rely Heavily on Your Support to Meet Our Funding Gap Challenge.
We are committed to our promise that residents are able to stay at home on Vashon. We are likewise committed to raising these precious additional funds. Let’s build a strong foundation together to secure the future of our dear residents at VCC. Every gift is valuable, large and small.
