The ALW (Assisted Living Waiver) Program is a program operating in several counties in California in which Medi-Cal pays for Assisted Living care in participating facilities for qualified seniors. Participants are required to be eligible for full-scope Medi-Cal benefits with no share of cost, and require a nursing home level of care. There is a standardized assessment tool used by Care Coordination Agencies to determine care levels and needed services for each qualified participant so they can create an individualized service plan for each person. Qualified residents pay for their room and board at a fixed rate depending on their SSI income, and Medi-Cal pays for their care and services. Care Coordination Agencies will assist eligible candidates with the process from application to acceptance.
