Do you know what a Medicaid Waiver is? Have you ever heard of one?

A Medicaid Waiver is federally funded money that states can use to pay for services for people with mental health needs. It allows the state to provide funds through Medicaid that allow services which are community-based instead of institutional. Medicaid Waivers provide supports/services to those in need closer to their home and communities. In Pennsylvania, the Department of Public Welfare administers them with eligibility requirements, while in other states the process by which Medicaid Waivers are administered may vary.

All the best
