Using Medicaid to Cover Services for Elderly Persons in Residential Care Settings: State Policy Maker and Stakeholder Views in Six States. General Description
Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) serve six or more residents. Many of them are small and even though they typically have shared rooms, they are more homelike than nursing homes. The state has two classes of RCFs. The regulations contain staff ratios for Class I and Class II facilities that vary by time of day and the number of residents.
