Waivers offer an array of services and benefits such as choice of qualified providers, due process, and health and safety assurances.
The name waiver comes from the fact that the federal government “waives” Medical Assistance/Medicaid rules for institutional care in order for Pennsylvania to use the same funds to provide supports and services for people closer to home in their own communities.
In Pennsylvania, the Department of Human Services administers multiple Medical Assistance/Medicaid waivers. Each waiver has its own unique set of eligibility requirements and services.
Below is a list of waivers we are currently providing services for. Please click on each waiver to be redirected to the PA DHS (Pennsylvania Department of Human Services) website for more information about that particular waiver.
