Project Description

The ALWP is designed to assist Medi-Cal beneficiaries to remain in their community as an alternative to receiving care in a licensed health care facility.  The program provides specified benefits to eligible seniors and persons with disabilities.  Eligible beneficiaries will participate in one of two care provider models: 

  1. In the first model, Assisted Living services are provided to participants who reside in Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs).  In this model, services are delivered by the RCFE staff. 
  2. In the second model, Assisted Living Care services are provided to participants who reside in publicly subsidized housing.  In this model, services are delivered by Home Health Agency staff.

ALWP- eligible individuals are those who are enrolled in Medi-Cal and need the level of care provided in a nursing facility due to their medical needs.  If the individual meets both the financial and health/functional requirements of the program, then she or he can choose to enroll in the ALWP.  To begin the process of enrolling in the ALWP, interested individuals should first contact a Care Coordinator Agency in one of the participating counties.  The Care Coordinator will help determine if the individual is eligible for the program.
