Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services “Mental Health Waiver”


“The waiver program, authorized in §1915(c) of the Social Security Act, allows the State to furnish an array of home and community-based services that assist Medicaid beneficiaries to live in the community and avoid institutional care. Waiver services complement and/or supplement services available to participants through the Medicaid State plan and other federal, state and local public programs as well as natural supports that families and communities provide. The Waiver will serve individuals who are currently in nursing facilities or who are at risk for this level of care. The Waiver is operated by the DMHAS with oversight by the Department of Social Services (DSS).”
