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.
