Type C or Fee for Service contracts generally have a lower entrance fee and monthly service fee than Type A contracts, but do not include expenses for assisted living or skilled nursing. These services are paid for as needed at the market rate, and are often difficult to predict.
Benevolent Care is the discounting of fees for current residents who have exhausted their assets. It is generally only available to residents who appeared likely to be able to cover the full cost of their care at the time of application. Communities which offer Benevolent Care typically guarantee that residents can stay in the community if they outlive their assets, dependent on endowment funds.
