“The Waiver” Application Process
Over two thousand people with developmental disabilities are now receiving waiver services and support in their homes and communities. It is important to remember that many factors are involved in determining eligibility so applying for “The Waiver” may be a long process. It can take a few weeks to complete all phases of the application process or longer depending on individual circumstances.
Each phase of “The Waiver” application process involves one or more steps. The phases may not need to be completed in the listed order but all of them must be completed before waiver services begin. Don’t worry if you have already completed one or more of the steps or phases, you do not have to repeat them. The next few sections will outline these steps.
