Serving People

Helping elderly and disabled people retain independence at home

The Medicaid Waiver Home and Community-Based Care (HCBC) program is designed to provide services for elderly seniors and disabled individuals that allow them to live well in their own homes and communities they love rather than having their needs met in a nursing home.


To be eligible for these services, participants must be:
  • Fully enrolled in Medicaid and/or disabled with income no greater than 300% of the SSI limit
  • Determined by a doctor to be at a level of disability that would otherwise require nursing facility care
