Cost of Assisted Living in California

Most assisted living communities in California charge a monthly fee that covers room, board, daily services and accommodations. Residents pay for assisted living care using personal savings and resources, but may take advantage of long-term care insurance, life insurance or annuities to help shoulder the cost.

Because California assisted living facilities are considered non-medical, Medicare and Medi-Cal provide only limited support. But as of March 1, 2009 the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare services renewed the Assisted Living Waiver (ALW) to provide benefits to seniors who are both Medi-Cal and nursing home eligible.

Since its renewal in March 1, 2014 for another five years, ALW extended its Medi-Cal benefits to qualified seniors living in assisted care in the counties of Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Sonoma, Fresno, San Bernardino, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa, Kern, Orange, and Riverside.
