Important information and reminders for families of children and adults in the Home Care Program

The Home Care Program offers care coordination and support to help your family safely care for your child at home. There are many partners and services involved in this process.

We’ve put together tip sheets, reminders and other information to help you better understand the services available for your child and how they work.

Your Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) Care Coordinator can also help answer any questions or give you more details.

  • Home Care Nursing Information for Families – Important reminders about in-home nursing and the partners involved in your child’s care.
  • Waiver Services for Home Care Families – Home Care participants who are on the Home and Community-Based Services Waiver for Medically Fragile Technology Dependent (MFTD) Children are eligible for certain services. We have tip sheets to help you understand what services are available.
  • Non-Waiver Services for Home Care Families – An overview of services available for participants who are not eligible for the MFTD waiver.
  • Reminders During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency – Appendix K is an emergency coverage document for individuals who receive services through a Medicaid waiver. It includes approval of nurse overtime for nurses working in the home setting, allowing parents who are licensed nurses to be paid caregivers and an increase in respite hours for MFTD waiver participants.
