Waivers By State

   

 

*Medicaid Waivers, In Every State*

 

Medicaid Waivers help provide services to people who would otherwise be in a nursing home or hospital to receive long-term care in the community. Although there are waivers for many conditions, our focus is towards waivers for people who have developmental disabilities. Internet links to the state waiver program for all 50 states, are provided on the right side bar.

Many people who qualify for waiver services are not even aware that they exist. Families struggle alone, to provide care- creating economic, physical, and emotional strain. States do not educate people about these programs, and it is often only through crisis that people realize help is available.

The waiting period to get onto a waiver, can be many years, and varies by state. Unfortunately, waiver eligibility does not transfer from state to state. This is a huge problem for families who wish to move to another state. It also unfairly distributes the federally matched dollars among states because each state determines it's own budget.

There are still people living in state institutions today. And, it has been questioned as to whether states violate the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when they limit the number the number of participants to home and community based waiver programs. However, states chose to participate in these programs. Our best hope is to get statutes changed at the federal level.
