AIDS Medi-Cal Waiver Program

Local agencies, under contract with the California Department of Public Health, Office of AIDS, provide home- and community-based services as an alternative to nursing facility care or hospitalization.

Services provided include: case management, skilled nursing, attendant care, psychotherapy, home-delivered meals, nutritional counseling, nutritional supplements, medical equipment and supplies, minor physical adaptations to the home, non-emergency medical transportation, and financial supplements for foster care.

Clients eligible for the program must be Medi-Cal recipients:  whose health status qualifies them for nursing facility care or hospitalization,  in an “Aid Code” with full benefits and not enrolled in the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE); have a written diagnosis of HIV disease or AIDS with current signs, symptoms, or disabilities related to HIV disease or treatment; adults who are certified by the nurse case manager to be at the nursing facility level of care and score 60 or less using the Cognitive and Functional Ability Scale assessment tool, children under 13 years of age who are certified by the nurse case manager as HIV/AIDS symptomatic; and individuals with a health status that is consistent with in-home services and who have a home setting that is safe for both the client and service providers.

For further information refer to the Office of AIDS.

The AIDS Medi-Cal Waiver Program (MCWP) provides comprehensive case management and direct care services to persons living with HIV as an alternative to nursing facility care or hospitalization. Case management is a participant centered, team approach consisting of a registered nurse and social work case manager. Case managers work with the participant and primary care provider(s), family, caregiver(s), and other service providers, to assess care needs in order to keep the participant in their home and community.

The goals of the MCWP are to: (1) provide home and community-based services for persons with HIV who may otherwise require institutional services; (2) assist participants with HIV health management; (3) improve access to social and behavioral health support and (4) coordinate service providers and eliminate duplication of services.

There are 20 MCWP providers located throughout California. MCWP providers served about 1,500 participants during 2016.

MCWP participant services include: attendant care, nurse and social work case management, home-delivered meals, homemaker services, minor physical adaptions to the home, non-emergency medical transportation, nutritional counseling, psychotherapy, skilled nursing (RN/LVN), specialized medical equipment/medical supplies, and nutritional supplements.

Who is eligible

Participants must (1) have a written diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, (2) have a health status to make home care appropriate, (3) be Medi-Cal eligible on date of enrollment and each month thereafter, and (4) have been certified to meet the Nursing Facility Level of Care or higher.
