Waiver Service Programs

Minnesota has entered into a number of waiver agreements with the federal government in order to provide Minnesotans with more choice in their services. There are some differences in the services available in each waiver and the amount of money a person can use to purchase supports.

Home and community-based waiver programs available to people who meet the eligibility criteria include:

  • Alternative Care, a program that supports certain home and community-based services for older Minnesotans, age 65 years and over, who are at risk of nursing home placement and have low levels of income and assets.

  • Brain Injury (BI) Waiver for people with acquired or traumatic brain injuries who need the level of care provided in a nursing facility that provides specialized (cognitive and behavioral supports) services for people with brain injury or neurobehavioral hospital level of care.

  • Developmental Disabilities (DD) Waiver for people with developmental disability or related condition who need the level of care provided in an Intermediate Care Facility for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (ICF/DD).

  • Elderly Waiver (EW) for people over the age of 65 years who require the level of care provided in a nursing facility.

Consumer directed community supports (CDCS) is available under the Alternative Care program and each of the waivers.
