Determining If Waiver Is Right For You
After you have identified your needs, the important question becomes, “which of these needs can be met using a waiver service(s)?” If necessary, your circle of support can help you answer this question. If it is determined that your needs can be met using a waiver service(s), you will need to complete a waiver application and apply for Medicaid if you have not already done so.
“The Waiver” Application
You must complete a separate application to apply for “The Waiver” through the DOH DDD. Your case manager will provide you with the “Application and Request for Home and Community Based Services – DD/MR.” You will need the listed information to complete this application.
Social Security Number
Your residential status is an explanation of where you live. You will need to know if you live in a licensed/certified setting, independently, with family, with a relative, in an institution/facility, in a hospital/acute care, or another situation.
