“The purpose of a home and community based services waiver program, also known as a “1915(c) waiver,” is to enable children or aged, blind, or disabled adults requiring a nursing facility level of care to reside in their homes or community settings rather than in a medical institution. • Services for waiver participants are federally matched expenses, although these services are not included in the State Medicaid Plan. • Each waiver program has different medical and other non-financial criteria for its targeted population.”
