Home and Community-based Waivers (HCBS)

1915 Home and Community-based Waivers

Innovative Medicaid models of care are being implemented across the country for targeted population groups such as people with mental illnesses, intellectual or developmental disabilities, and/or physical disabilities. Many of these individuals require coordinated physical, behavioral, and social services in order to address health risks, gaps in care, and barriers to health. One innovative Medicaid care model is Home and community-based services (HCBS).

Medicaid Home and Community­-based Waivers (HCBS) can be used to cover services that provide ongoing support for housing stability and community integration needed by those with disabilities and/or substance abuse disorders. Some of these Medicaid-funded support services include:

  • Case management/care coordination
  • Home health aide
  • Personal care
  • Health-­related services, including skilled and unskilled nursing services to address chronic conditions
  • Habilitation
  • Psychosocial rehabilitation services
  • Social supports to participate in community activities
  • Family and caregiver supports, including training and respite care
  • Adaptive services for accessibility, including home modifications such as wheelchair ramps
  • Other services, including housing locator services
