Medicaid and Persons with Disabilities - Part 1: The Regular State Medicaid Program Part II: A Focus on Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waivers

Description: This handout provides an overview of how the regular state Medicaid program operates. This includes some discussion of the range of services covered or potentially covered by the regular Medicaid program. This handout will then discuss, in Part Two, HCBS waivers and what they can offer to individuals with disabilities who have specialized health care and related needs. This will include some discussion of the range of possible waiver provisions that would allow individuals to establish eligibility for Medicaid despite income or resources of responsible parents or spouses. It will then provide state-specific examples of how waivers are being used to benefit persons with disabilities, with an emphasis on assistive technology available through the waivers.
