The Waiver Program is for persons age 3 through 21 who are determined to have a developmental disability. The Waiver Program allows DHS to:
- provide services in the home or a community-based group home to individuals who are eligible for and are at risk of placement in an institution;
- provide medical benefits to persons who may not otherwise qualify for medical benefits;
- provide services that are not normally covered by medical; and
- not consider the income and assets of the child's parents when determining eligibility.
The program is case managed by DHS Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD).
