    Can congregate care be required to accept Medicaid?

    From what I understand, some congregate care facilities (independent living, assisted living) accept Medicaid, and some don't. Does anyone who has experience with congregate care have an idea if a city can require, thru a development agreement or affordable housing requirement, that a congregate care facility be required to accept Medicaid, at least up to a certain percentage of its units? I could see this working in two ways:

    a) If a city that doesn't have inclusionary zoning requires this through the development review process - perhaps by ordinance?
    b) If a city that has inclusionary zoning, would waive this requirement on congregate care so long as they agree to accept Medicaid (perhaps capped at up to xx% of their residents, for example?)

    Thanks!

    It's a federal issue and has nothing to do with local land use matters.
