Assisted Living Waiver Pilot Project

Funding for the Assisted Living Waiver Pilot Project will continue.  Currently there are funds for residential communities in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and San Joaquin Counties.  However, there is interest in expanding the project to other areas of the state.  There is reimbursement at four levels of care to communities who care for seniors who are at risk for placement into a skilled nursing home, yet cannot pay for higher levels of care. 

The program is open to people over the age of 21 who reside in an RCFE, receive Medi-Cal, and are at risk for a move to a skilled nursing facility.

If you are a provider in Los Angeles, Sacramento, or San Joaquin County, and care for seniors on SSI, consider contacting the Assisted Living Waiver Project for information on accessing this program.  If you are not from one of these areas, watch for changes to the program into expanded areas.
