Indiana Medicaid/Family Support Services Waiver Information

Indiana Medicaid pays for services for individuals who choose to remain in their home as an alternative to receiving services in an institution, such as a nursing facility. These services are referred to as home and community-based services (HCBS). These programs are intended to assist a person to be as independent as possible and live in the least restrictive environment possible while maintaining safety in the home.

The Family Supports HCBS waiver provides limited, non-residential supports to individuals with developmental disabilities who live with their families or in other settings with informal supports.

Individuals must meet HCBS waiver eligibility and Medicaid eligibility guidelines in order to be eligible for a Medicaid HCBS waiver. To be eligible individuals must:

  • Be diagnosed as having an intellectual disability prior to the age of 22
  • Reside in or transitioning into an HCBS-compliant setting (non-institutionalized)
  • Have income no greater than 300% of maximum Supplemental Security Income (SSI) amount (parental income for children under 18 years of age is disregarded)
  • Meet “ICF/IID level of care”
