How to Get the Extra Help You Need To Stay in Your Own Home and Avoid a Long-Term Care Facility

April 2009, Pub #5392.01

 

There are a number of different programs in California that can help individuals with disabilities and/or seniors remain in their home, or help them return home from a long-term care facility (including hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities).[1] 

Home and Community-Based (HCBS) Waivers

A Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver is a special Medi-Cal program that waives certain Medi-Cal rules so that people can live at home instead of living in a facility.  First, the waivers use the same Medi-Cal rules for counting income and property that are used for people living in a facility.  This makes it possible for married people to live at home together and for minor children to live at home with their parents without having their spouse's or parents' income and property deemed to be their own income and property.  Second, additional services are available under the waivers that are not ordinarily available under the regular Medi-Cal program for people living at home.  This means that Medi-Cal beneficiaries can receive the services they need at home instead of having to go to a facility to receive them.

There are a variety of different HCBS Waivers including:  Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) Waiver; Assisted Living Pilot Program Waiver (ALWPP); Home and Community-Based Services Waiver for the Developmentally Disabled (HCBS-DD); Nursing Facility/Acute Hospital (NF/AH) Waiver; and the Multi Purpose Senior Services Waiver (MSSP).

 

  • Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) Waiver This Waiver serves Medi-Cal eligible individuals with HIV disease or AIDS.  Services provided include: Case Management; Homemaker assistance; Home Health Aid - Attendant Care; Psychotherapy; Medi-Cal Supplements for Infants and Children in Foster Care; Non-Emergency Medical Transportation; Nutritional Counseling; Nutritional Supplements; Home-Delivered Meals; Skilled Nursing - Registered Nurse / Licensed Vocational Nurse; Specialized Medical Equipment / Supplies; and, Minor Physical Adaptations to the Home. 

For more information, see http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/services/medi-cal/Pages/AIDSMedi-CalWaiver.aspx.  For a list of AIDS Waiver providers, see Attachment A.

 

Assisted Living Waiver Pilot Project (ALWPP) The Assisted Living Waiver Pilot Project (ALWPP) is a Medi-Cal program that pays for assisted lLiving, care coordination and other benefits provided to eligible seniors and persons with disabilities who reside in one of the Project’s three target counties:  Sacramento, San Joaquin and Los Angeles.  This waiver serves individuals who are 21 Years or Older, are physically disabled, and meet the level of care criteria for a Nursing Facility.  Individuals receive services either in Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs ) or in publicly subsidized housing.
