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 01, 2009 the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare services renewed the Assisted Living Waiver (ALW) that will provide benefits to seniors who are both Medi-Cal and nursing home eligible. ALW will extend Medi-Cal benefits to qualified seniors living in assisted care in the counties of Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Sonoma, Fresno, San Bernardino and Riverside.
