PASSPORT is an Ohio Medicaid program that helps eligible older adults receive care and support in their homes, instead of a nursing home. It is Ohio’s in-home alternative to nursing home care. Without it, many disabled, low-income older adults would be forced prematurely into nursing homes.

Assisted Living Waiver
The Assisted Living Waiver program gives Medicaid-eligible adults the opportunity to live in an approved assisted living facility. It is an alternative for people who need long-term care, but not a nursing home. Assisted living offers residents more independence, privacy, opportunities for social interaction, and services more tailored to their needs.
