Medicaid Waivers

Medicaid Waivers / Home and Community Based Services

Medicaid Waivers, sometimes called Home and Community Based Services, allow Medicaid to fund supports and services for children and adults with disabilities in their family homes or community residential programs instead of institutions.  Medicaid Waivers allow an individual to use traditional Medicaid services and the additional services available through the Medicaid Waiver program.
