When the Waiver services could end

Your family member can keep getting the Waiver services as long as they want to, unless one of the following things happens.

Waiver and support coordination services might end if your family member:

  • Asks to end Waiver services

  • Permanently moves outside of the service area (for example, to another state)

  • Stays in an acute care hospital, rehab hospital, or nursing facility for more than 90 days in a row

  • Needs a level of care that is above what the Waiver services can give

  • Is not receiving Waiver services, or refuses them, forat least30 days in a row

  • Has other state benefits that become more cost-effective (It costs less money to give them another service)

  • Is no longer eligible for Medicaid (for example, income is too high)

  • Dies

  • No longer qualifies based on their level of need (as decided by the HSD)

  • Is put in jail or juvenile detention

  • Does not cooperate with assessments or with following the Plan of Care.

The Support Coordinator will help with this whole process. They will make sure you fill out all paperwork and that you send all records to the right place.
