Waiver Services for Home Care Families
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
