A resident of a private facility who has a life care contract with the facility is ineligible for benefits. A life care contract provides for the client's total needs for the rest of their life, so there is no unmet need.
Residents of private facilities, in addition to those with life care contracts, are ineligible when they have purchased care and maintenance that provides for all their needs in the facility and the amount paid has not been totally used for care.
