Medicaid Waivers offer extra support services for kids and adults with disabilities. For those who will need personal care support as an adult, this is a critical benefit to support them throughout their life.
Waiver services help with things like self-care, respite care, special equipment, engaging with the community or finding employment for adults.
If you have a child with a disability, it’s always worth seeing if they qualify for a waiver. It can be a huge help by giving them services in the future.
