Tip sheets to explain available services and support for Home Care Program participants on the MFTD waiver

Home Care participants who are eligible for the Home and Community-Based Services Waiver for Medically Fragile Technology Dependent Children (commonly called the MFTD waiver) have more complex needs that require a higher level of care.

Home Care participants who are on the waiver are eligible for certain services and benefits to meet these complex needs.

These services include:

  • Respite care
  • Specialized medical equipment and supplies that Medicaid does not cover for individuals over age 21
  • Family training on your child’s care
  • Nurse training for your child’s needs and equipment
  • Minor home and vehicle modifications
  • Extermination in the home
  • Short-term, issue-specific counseling

We’ve developed tip sheets to further explain some of these benefits:
