Assisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP)The Assisted Living Waiver Program is designed to assist MediCal beneficiaries to remain in their community as an alternative to residing in a skilled nursing facility. The program provides specified benefits to eligible seniors and persons with disabilities.
- Making affordable housing with personal and health-related services available to seniors and individuals with disabilities
- Maximizing dignity, privacy, independence, and autonomy
- Providing an alternative to long-term care placement in a nursing home
Determining MediCal EligibilityAssisted Living Waiver Program (ALWP) eligible individuals are those who are enrolled in MediCal and meet the level of care provided in a nursing facility due to their medical needs. Individuals with MediCal benefits that include a share of cost may not be enrolled in the ALWP. Please contact your local county office to obtain information about how to apply for MediCal benefits. Please note: the state does not determine eligibility for MediCal benefits.
Determining Level of Care EligibilityDetermination of care needs is done by registered nurses (RN) employed by a Care Coordination Agency (CCA). Click on the Care Coordination Agency’s link and contact one of the CCAs to request an assessment. A pre-screening “assessment” will be done over the phone before an appointment is set up for the actual assessment.
