Assisted Living Waiver (ALW)


To be eligible¬to receive services as an ALW Participant, an individual must meet the following ALW eligibility criteria:

Age 21 or older;

Have full-scope Medi-Cal eligibility with zero share of cost;

Have care needs equal to those of Medi-Cal-funded residents living and receiving care in nursing facilities;

Willing to live in an assisted living setting as an alternative to a nursing facility;

Able to reside safely in an assisted living facility or public subsidized housing;

Willing to live in an assisted living setting located in one of the following counties providing ALW services: Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno, Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Sonoma counties.

‚Äč‚ÄčALW is limited to individuals eligible for Medi-Cal, without a Medi-Cal share of cost, who require a nursing facility level of care and wish to live in a residential care setting or in publicly funded senior and/or disabled housing. ALW participants must have sufficient funds to pay for their room and board, with some funds remaining to meet personal and incidental needs. In determining Medi-Cal eligibility for individuals who are applying for enrollment into ALW, institutional and spousal impoverishment prevention rules are applied.

The goals of the ALW are to:

1) facilitate a safe and timely transition of Medi-Cal-eligible seniors and persons with disabilities from a nursing facility to a community home-like setting in a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE), an Adult Residential Care Facility (ARF), or subsidized public housing, utilizing ALW services; and

2) offer eligible seniors and persons with disabilities, who reside in the community, but are at risk of being institutionalized, the option of utilizing ALW services to develop a program that will safely meet his/her care needs while continuing to reside in a RCF, ARF, or public subsidized housing.
