Services that may be available to you (based on assessment and determination)
Children’s Extensive Support Medicaid Waiver:
The Children’s Extensive Support Waiver helps children (under 18) and families by providing services and supports that will help children establish a long-term foundation for community inclusion as they grow into adulthood. This program is specifically for children demonstrating a medical or behavioral condition where constant line of supervision is regularly needed to keep the child and others safe. Services include: personal assistance with daily living, respite, community connector services, assistive technology, home modification, and professional services.
Children with Autism Medicaid Waiver:
This waiver is for children who have a medical diagnosis of autism. Young children with autism frequently need a wide range of services to help them with self regulation, to develop speech and language skills, and to learn social and emotional skills to further integrate into classroom settings. Intensive behavioral services assist both the child and the family to learn skills and techniques to enhance the child’s development for later success in life.
Supported Living Services Medicaid Waiver:
This waiver provides a variety of services and supports for adults (ages 18+) living in their own homes or with family in the community. The services provided include personal assistance with daily living activities, homemaking skills, employment supports, day services, assistive technology, home modification, professional services, and transportation. (State-funded Supported Living Services program has limited funding available for individuals who are not eligible for Long Term Care Medicaid, same services available.)
Comprehensive (or DD) Medicaid Waiver:
This waiver provides assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with assistance for each individual (ages 18+) designed according to their prioritized needs. This program provides residential services, day program services, behavioral services, transportation services and employment services. Resources are limited by the state, and there is a waiting list.
Family Support Program:
This program is not a Medicaid Waiver, but rather a state funded program for individuals aged three through adulthood. Funds are available for a wide variety of services and supports for the individual and family, including respite, behavioral supports, technical or adaptive supports, skill building, transportation, home modification, family therapy, and medical or dental services not covered under the Medicaid State Plan.
Community Outreach Program:
The Community Outreach Program provides support to individuals of all ages waiting for state or federally funded services; funding for this program is provided by Mill Levy dollars, grants, and donations through the SUN foundation. Families accessing this program are connected with a supportive coordinator to help with navigation of resources. Families also have the opportunity to receive a weekly resource newsletter, attend trainings, connect with other families and receive special discounts on services and programs.
Early Intervention Program:
This program serves families who have a child up to age 3 who has a delay in his/her development and/or a qualifying diagnosis. This program partners with local school districts for the initial evaluation to assess each child’s development, and determine if the child qualifies for the supports and services offered through the Early Intervention Program. If the child is determined eligible, his or her family will receive a Service Coordinator to organize in-home or community based services. The parents’ concerns and the needs of the child will determine which services are offered and lead to an Individualized Family Service Plan to address routine based goals. Primary services include: developmental intervention, social/emotional intervention, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, sign language, and audiology services.
