The Support Waiver (formerly known as the Community Support Waiver) began in July 2003, for persons who have a place to live in the community, usually with family. However, the family in unable to provide all the other services and supports the person requires, which may include 24-hour care or supervision, seven days a week. This waiver has an individual annual cap on the total amount of services a person can receive of $28,000. The person must meet ICF/ID level of care and must be at risk of needing ICF/ID services if waiver services are not provided.
The Support Waiver serves over 1,400 individuals.
