Will medi-cal pay for assisted living?

Currently, Medi-Cal does not pay for assisted living. In general, Medi-Cal is limited to long term care in a skilled nursing facility. There is a pilot program in some counties in the state called the Medi-Cal Assisted Living Waver Program. There aren't many facilities accepting Medi-Cal, and the ones that are have a very long waiting list.
