Kentucky State Medicaid Waivers

Children and adults with an intellectual disability may qualify for a 1915(c) Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Medicaid waiver. These waivers provide the support you need to live as independently as possible.

1915(c) HCBS waivers typically offer Medicaid-paid services you can not receive through Kentucky’s state Medicaid program.
