Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver Program

This Medicaid program covers care in an assisted living facility for eligible Ohioans.

Assisted living combines a home-like setting with personal support services to provide more intensive care than is available through home care services. Care in these settings is generally less expensive and less restrictive than similar care in a nursing home. Ohio's Assisted Living Waiver Program pays the costs of care in a participating assisted living facility for eligible people with Medicaid, allowing the consumer to use his or her resources to cover "room and board" expenses.
