Medicaid & Employment

“The Assisted Living Waiver is a home and community-based waiver that provides services to beneficiaries who, but for the provision of such services, would require the level of care provided in a nursing facility. Qualified beneficiaries are allowed to reside in a Personal Care Home-Assisted Living (PCH-AL) facility that is licensed as a PCH-AL Facility by the Mississippi State Department of Health, and is approved as a Medicaid provider for Assisted Living services. Medicaid reimburses for the services received in the facility.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved the below Appendix K:  Emergency Preparedness and Response in response to the COVID-19 outbreak for the Assisted Living Waiver.”
