This waiver is for adults and children with an intellectual disability. There is a waiting list for this waiver. To find out what services are available with the ID Waiver visit the Medicaid Waiver Services Chart.
The individual 6 and over must have a psychological evaluation with a diagnosis of intellectual disability.
The individual under 6 needs a psychological or standardized developmental evaluation that says the child has a diagnosis of intellectual disability or is at developmental risk.
Contact your local Community Services Board (CSB) to request to have an evaluation. They will use the Level of Functioning (LOF) to determine if the individual meets the requirements. Local Community Services Boards maintain waiting lists and assign waiver slots.
The individual must also meet financial requirements and complete a Medicaid application, don’t worry the financial Medicaid requirements are based on the individual’s income not the family’s income!
