1915(i) State Plan Option - Adult Day Health Care and Habilitation

Nevada

State Policies & Initiatives: 
Medicaid & Employment

“Section 1915(i) of the Social Security Act allows the Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) to provide State Plan Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) similar to that of a 1915(c) HCBS Waiver using needs-based eligibility criteria rather than institutional level of care criteria.  This affords individuals who require less than institutional level of care, but still have a significant need, to have access to greater number of services in the community which they might not otherwise qualify if only offered under a 1915(c) Waiver.”
