Assisted Living: Medicaid – Home and Community Based Services

 

Medicaid in Colorado

Licensed Assisted Living Residences that are certified to accept Medicaid funds are called Alternative Care Facilities.

The Medicaid Program that pays for assisted living is called Home and Community Based Services – under either: the Elderly, Blind and Disabled (EBD) Waiver or Mental Illness (MI) Waiver programs.

They are called waiver programs because they are intended to serve individuals who meet the level of care screening for long term care (nursing) facilities, and provide the state with a cost effective alternative. The program is for those with limited incomes. It is possible that you may not currently meet the income/asset qualifications.
