The Community Integration and Habilitation Waiver was created, effective September 1, 2012. It used to be referred to as the Developmental Disabilities Waiver or the Autism Waiver. These have both been combined to create this waiver.
This waiver is based on the needs of the individual and the individual’s ALGO Level. There is no annual CAP, but rather funding is based on a series of assessments (which determines a person’s ALGO level). Typically, this waiver allows an individual to live on his/her own or with roommates in the community, and receive staff support as well. The person may also choose to remain living in his/her family home too.
There is no longer a waiting list for this waiver, rather emergency criteria is the only qualifying factor at this point. Qualification for this waiver is based on the following emergency criteria:
- The primary caregiver is 80 years of age or older.
- Loss of primary caregiver.
- Extraordinary health and safety risk.
- Evidence of abuse or neglect in the current institutional or home placement.
