Aged & Disabled Medicaid Waiver

The Aged and Disabled Medicaid Waiver is a service system based upon the belief that people with care needs should have options for receiving services. After thorough needs identification and service planning, eligible persons are offered the choice of receiving home and community based services, assisted living, or entering a nursing facility.


Individuals who are 65 and older may be eligible for the Medicaid Waiver if they:
  • Are eligible for Medicaid
  • Agree to participate in needs identification and choose to accept supportive services
  • Have needs which would require them to live in a nursing home
  • Can be safely served at home at a cost not more than Medicaid would pay for nursing home care
