Ohio’s Home and Community Based Waiver Waiting List


State Policies & Initiatives: 
Medicaid & Employment

~~“Changes to Ohio's Waiver Waiting List for home and community-based services waivers make it easier to identify a person's needs and coordinate needed services.
The changes to the Waiting List include a statewide assessment tool used to better understand a person's need for services, and any current or immediate needs they may have.
Every person currently on Ohio's Waiver Waiting List will move to a transitional list and take part in an assessment with their county board of developmental disabilities by December 31, 2020. This assessment will help to determine if there is a need for services that is not being met.”
