“The Elderly and Disabled Waiver program is administered directly by the Home and Community Based Services division (HCBS).

The Elderly and Disabled Waiver program provides home and community-based services to individuals age 21 years old and older who, but for the provision of such services, would require the level of care provided in a nursing facility. Beneficiaries of this waiver must qualify for Medicaid as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries or meet the income and resource eligibility requirements for income level up to 300% of the SSI federal benefit rate and meet medical criteria of the program.”
