Assisted Living Financial Assistance

New York offers two different Medicaid waivers for assisted living, with the intention of the programs to allow seniors to delay moving into a nursing home. The first is the Managed Long Term Care Waiver (MLTC), which gives recipients flexibility to pay for senior care, such as moving into assisted living accommodations or paying for a homemaker and home health care aid service so they can remain in their own home. 

The second Medicaid waiver in New York is the Assisted Living Program (ALP), which helps those eligible pay for accommodations in assisted living. Recipients of this program must qualify for a nursing home level of care but may opt for an assisted living home instead.
