MEDICAID WAIVER NETWORK
Is your agency considering the opportunities for patient referrals that can be provided through Medicaid Waiver Programs?
Did you know that Medicaid waiver programs typically have minimum startup fees and can be an excellent source of revenue?
With the federal government’s approval of State Medicaid Waiver programs allowing in home care treatment for consumers with intellectual and related disabilities, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury and other types of disabilities, your home health care agency can provide much needed services to consumers in their homes and in their communities. Nearly all States and DC offer services through home and community-based services waivers (HCBS Waivers). States can operate as many HCBS Waivers as they want, currently more than 300 HCBS Waiver programs are active nationwide.
Your state may offer a variety of unlimited services under an HCBS Waiver program. Programs can provide a combination of standard medical services and non-medical services.
Standard services include but are not limited to:
- Case Management (i.e. supports and service coordination)
- Home Health Aide
- Personal Care
- Adult Day Health Services
- Rehabilitation (both day and residential)
- Respite Care.
States can also propose “other” types of services that may assist in diverting and/or transitioning individuals from institutional settings into their homes and community.
To avoid confusion, it is worth mentioning that waivers are also referred to as 1915 waivers (for the Social Security Act), HCBS waivers, waiver services, waiver programs and by any number of other state-specific names such as the New Jersey Global Options (GO) waiver or the Texas STAR Plus.
