Medicaid Waiver Services

Louisiana

“The State of Louisiana offers two Medicaid Waiver Programs to individuals with developmental disabilities. These programs are called Children's Choice and the New Opportunities Waiver (NOW). Some of the services included in these programs are: case management, personal care respite support, environmental modifications, equipment, and Medicaid. Services are based upon the child's disability, not parental income.

 

Flexible Family Funding is a small monthly supplement for school aged children with severe or profound disabilities who qualify for Special Education through the school system and have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).”
