What is a Medicaid Waiver?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A Medicaid waiver does not have the same rules that normally apply to the Medicaid program. The Medicaid waiver program allows states to expand coverage, reduce costs, and improve care for people who would otherwise be in an institution, hospital, o​r nursing home. As a result, Medicaid members can make the choice to remain home with family, and caregivers can receive help with care services.

For Medicaid members living at home, like seniors, people with disabilities, and children with serious emotional disorders who require assistance, there are four waiver programs available.
