Medicaid Waiver

What We Are

The Medicaid Waiver Program is a long term alternative to nursing home placement that provide services enabling an individual to remain or to return to their homes.

Case Management includes the coordination of services that are individually planned and arranged for clients whose needs may be life-long. The practice of Case Management helps to avoid duplication and provision of unnecessary services and to assure a balance of services. The program promotes independence and care for each client in the least restrictive setting and therefore enhancing each person's quality of life.
