2018 Revised Texas Promoting Independence Plan

Texas

~~“Funding for Reduction in Community-based Services Interest Lists  Texas has five 1915(c) Medicaid waiver programs and one Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) program in the 1115 waiver, which serve people who have a physical, IDD or a related condition.20 Community-based services and supports delivered via Medicaid waiver programs are in high demand and interest consistently outweighs available resources. Interest list numbers reflect individuals who have demonstrated interest in a waiver, but have not yet been assessed for financial or functional eligibility. Individuals may not be found eligible for the program after being assessed. Some service needs may be met through other programs, such as CFC or GR or Title XX funded services, until the individual’s name reaches the top of the interest list.”
