Waiver services are available to eligible individuals as an option to assist in living safely in a personal home or in the community instead of moving to a nursing facility. When eligible, the State will "waive" funding for a nursing home and spend the funds instead on assisting an individual to live in the community. These services are called Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS). HCBS include long-term services and supports (LTSS) which are offered through several State waivers. Each waiver has varying services that they offer and different eligibility requirements.
