Waiver Services

The "waiver" allows Medicaid to cover services not usually covered. These include:

  • Adaptive devices
  • Case management
  • Environmental modifications
  • Residential habilitation
  • Respite
  • Supported employment

The waiver allows Medicaid to treat children as "separate and apart" from their parents - we do not count parental income/resources. Waiver participants always need to be certified disabled (i.e., receiving Social Security Disability or have an approved AD (Aid to Disability).
