Medicaid Community Based Waiver

For Utah families with special needs who make just a little too much for assistance, this program may be able to help.

Quoted from Utah Family Voices Facebook page:

During the 2015 General Legislative Session HB 199 was passed. The bill required the Utah Department of Health to apply to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for a Medicaid home and community based waiver program. If approved by CMS,
this program will provide services to medically complex children. The bill authorized funding to serve approximately 165 children each year during a three year pilot period. Pending CMS approval, applications for the Medically Complex Children’s Waiver
(MCCW) will be accepted during an open application period that will run from October 1st - October 29th, 2015.
Applications will be accepted online through this webpage, via fax or mail. The application process will require parents to answer some questions about their child’s medical conditions and services. In addition, parents will be required to provide a copy of the child’s most recent history and physical by the Primary Care Provider.
In order to qualify the child must:
Be 0 through 18 years of age;
Have 3 or more specialty physicians;
Have involvement of 3 or more organ systems; and
Have an SSI level of disability determined by the Social Security Administration or the State Medical Review Board.
