Waiver Number: CA.0336.R04.00, California's HCBS DD Waiver


~~“California’'s HCBS DD Waiver offers community-based services not otherwise available through a participant’s Medicaid program. The purpose of the HCBS DD Waiver is to serve participants in their own homes and communities as an alternative to placing Medicaid-eligible individuals in intermediate care facilities for persons with developmental disabilities.  The HCBS DD Waiver  program recognizes that many individuals at risk of being placed in these facilities can be cared for in their homes and communities, preserving their independence and ties to family and friends at a cost no higher than that of institutional care.”
