~~“Waivers are agreements between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and a state's Medicaid agency and serve specific groups of people.
• Number of participants to be served
• Eligibility criteria
• Available services, including any limits on services
• Procedures for the evaluation and re-evaluation of level of care
Waivers give eligible people options if their needs can be met in their homes, and if providing services in a home and community setting is cost neutral compared to institutional services.”
