Medicaid Waivers - Medicaid Waivers can be the key to funding services for people with disabilities. Different types of waivers are available to people with varying disabilities and health complications. The waivers can pay for a variety of services, even those not typically covered by insurance depending on which waiver the person qualifies for.
Several of the programs that Hillcroft Services offers are funded through Medicaid Waiver. It currently takes 8-10 years from the date of application for a person with an eligible diagnosis to receive a Medicaid Waiver because there are a fixed number of Waiver slots throughout the state.
We encourage families to apply for Medicaid Waiver for their eligible family member as soon as the person receives a physician's diagnosis of a disability. The parental income and resources are not counted for children under the age of 18. It is important to remember that insurance plans have lifetime caps.
