Medicaid waivers allow a person who qualifies for services in a nursing home or intermediate care facility for people with intellectual disabilities (ICFID) to receive services in their own home and community. The Division serves people who qualify for and receive Medicaid waiver services and those whose services are funded by non-Medicaid sources.
Medicaid waivers are designed to:
- Promote access, inclusion and the development of valued social roles in local communities for people with disabilities.
- Foster mutually beneficial relationships among people with disabilities and members of their local communities.
- Provide support so that adults with disabilities can live safely in the neighborhoods they choose.
- Provide support so that children with disabilities can live with their families.
- Improve the independence people with disabilities have from their caregivers.
- Provide the money for supports that people with disabilities need without over-burdening the state general fund.
