Medicaid Assisted Living Services
Medicaid may provide assisted living services to beneficiaries who are medically eligible for placement in a nursing home but opt for a less medically intensive, lower-cost setting. These services may include personal care (e.g., assistance with dressing and bathing), homemaker services (e.g., housecleaning and laundry), personal emergency response services, and therapy services (i.e., physical, speech, and occupational). A 2018 Government Accountability Office report indicated that improved Federal oversight of beneficiary health and welfare is needed in States' administration of Medicaid assisted living services. We will determine whether assisted living providers are meeting quality-of-care requirements for Medicaid beneficiaries residing in assisted living facilities and whether the providers properly claimed Medicaid reimbursement for services in accordance with Federal and State requirements.
