CCC Plus Waiver – former EDCD and Tech Waivers combined

The former Elderly and/or Disabled with Consumer Direction Waiver and the Assisted Technology Waiver were combined into one singular waiver, the Commonwealth Coordinated Care (CCC)Plus Waiver effective July 1, 2017.

The CCC Plus Waiver is for:

  • adults 65+ with a medical or nursing need
  • individuals less than 65 years with a disability and a medical or nursing need.

There is no waiting list for this waiver.

It delivers services through agency and consumer directed models.

To request EDCD Waiver Services contact your local Dept. of Social Services or your local Dept. of Health.

Representatives from the VA Department of Health screen individuals to see if they are eligible to receive this waiver. An appointment will be scheduled for you to be screened for the waiver.

The team uses a tool called the Uniform Assessment Instrument (UAI) to determine if you/the individual meet the required functional dependencies and medical  needs and are at risk of nursing home placement. Screenings may also take place when an individual is hospitalized.

You/the individual must also submit a Medicaid application and meet financial requirements. You do not have to submit a Medicaid application prior to the screening.  Click to view how to Apply for Medicaid by phone, online or at your local Department of Social Services.  You may also go to your local Department of Social Services and ask for an application.  Don’t worry,  the financial considerations for Medicaid are based on the individual’s income not the family’s income!

For adults receiving the Waiver, the monthly income limit is $2,205.00.

If you are approved for the CCC Plus Waiver then you may be placed into a managed care health plan. Click to view the CCC Plus website.

Once you are approved for the Waiver you will need to select a Services Facilitator to initiate your services and plan of care.
