New Website to Help Address Health Care Workforce Shortages and Improve Care


The Alaska Division of Senior and Disabilities Services, ADvancing States and Centene Corporation, in a unique public-private partnership, have developed and launched ConnectToCareJobs, a website designed to help address health care workforce shortages during the COVID-19 public health emergency and beyond. ConnectToCareJobs links residential facilities (e.g. skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities) that need employees with health care professionals who need jobs. The initial launch is focused on residential care facilities, however the site may be expanded  to include hospitals and home care agencies in subsequent phases.



Immediate Assistance Needed


HSS Residential Licensing and SDS are working with an assisting an assisted living home in Anchorage that has five residents, three of which are COVID-positive and the other two have tested negative, but need to quarantine. The home unable to fully staff this home and residents are at risk of being placed in the hospital if caregivers are not found to keep them safely in their own home.

If your agency has staff willing to assist this home to provide temporary care for 7 to 10 days, or you have community placement options available for these individuals, please contact Craig Baxter with Residential Licensing at 907.632.3348 as soon as possible.

As more of our assisted living homes experience positive cases it will be essential to come together as a community and work on solving staffing shortages together.  Please communicate with us if you have ideas for how to assist with staffing during this public health emergency.  Thank you for your attention and service.

Medicaid 1135 Waiver


Medicaid 1135 Waiver Status

On 04/02/2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved, in part, the Department of Health and Social Services' (DHSS) Medicaid 1135 Waiver request. DHSS will implement approved waiver provisions on an as needed basis, and will notify providers of the effective date of each change. Until DHSS notification is issued, services provided under waiver provisions will not be covered. Because RA messages are issued weekly, and changes are occurring on a daily basis, notices will be published on the Alaska Medicaid Health Enterprise home page as approved waivers are implemented.
