Are you asking about Medicaid waiver programs? In some states (I think FL) they are called diversion programs. They provide limited funding to pay for the R & B of residents of ALF that qualify financially for Medicaid but do not need the skilled nursing care medical need that Medicaid requires. So some states have a program that diverts NH Medicaid $$$$ to ALF $$ to pay for their care. It is a way of not spending as much $ as ALF are so much less than a NH. Not all states have them and those that do have just a limited ALF and long waiting lists.
