This could be one of the most important things you do to get support throughout your life.
Waivers are a part of Medicaid, which is a state-funded health insurance. They're also called Home and Community-Based Waivers.
If you can live at home, but only with support, the waivers give that support.
What kinds of services?
- Help with independent skills
- Specialized equipment
- Employment training and support
- Help taking part in community activities
- Waivers provide services for children and adults
If there is any chance you or a family might need support services at some point, it's worth getting on the list!
