Medicaid Waiver Program

The Alabama Medicaid Elderly & Disabled Waiver Program is designed to provide services to older adults and others whose needs would qualify for placement in a long-term care facility.

 

This program is for those who qualify for Medicaid, and would require placement in a long term care facility if they did not get help in their home. The kinds of help available to those who qualify include:

 

• case management

• personal care

• homemaker services

• companion services

• respite care

• adult day services (where available)

• nutrition and meals.

 

Waiver program enrollment is limited and a waiting period may be required.

 

Common Questions

  • Does my loved one qualify for Medicaid?
  • Does my loved one's current level of care qualify for Waiver Services?
  • Do I have all the documentation (financial, legal, medical) needed to apply for services?
  • Can my local Area Agency on Aging help?
