What is a waiver?


A waiver is a long-term support system for someone who will have long-term care needs, like someone with a developmental disability.  The waiver provides access to a number of services, including personal care attendants, respite care, group home supports, day services, assistive technology, environmental modifications, nursing, and more.  

Waivers are funded by Medicaid and are often called Medicaid Waivers.  Individuals  must qualify for long-term care Medicaid to use a Waiver.  As of 2017, this means that an adult with a disability cannot have more than $2,000 in assets in their name (unless those assets are in a Special Needs Trust or ABLE Account) and they cannot earn more than $2,205 per month.
