Ohio began to offer an Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver as another long-term care
option for individuals with Medicaid in July 2006. The Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver
pays for the cost of care (not room and board) in participating Assisted Living communities
in Ohio. Consumers are responsible for the cost of their room and board at a rate
set by the state. For more information on the Program or eligibility criteria, please
contact Ohio’s Association of Area Agencies on Aging (OAAAA), or your local Area
Agency on Aging, www.ohioaging.org.
