Medicaid Waiver

Home and Community-Based Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program

Through participation with the State of MS Division of Medicaid, CMPDD provides access to home and community-based services to individuals who are at risk for institutionalization.  These individuals may also require the level of care found in a nursing facility. 

To qualify for this service, the following factors are required:

  1. Beneficiaries must be 21 years of age or older;
  2. Persons must meet Medicaid eligibility by receiving either SSI benefits, or monthly income must be no more than 300% of SSI income limits;
  3. Recipients must score 50 or above on the Long-Term Services and Supports InterRAI assessment tool;
  4. Recipients must meet nursing facility level of care, and require assistance with activities of daily living or instrumental activities of daily living.

Services under this program include:  Personal Care Attendant services, In-Home Respite services, Institutional Respite services, Adult Day Care services, Home Delivered Meals, Extended Home Health services, assistance during transportation to receive medical care, and Community Transition services for qualified individuals transitioning from a nursing facility to a home or community-based setting.   All services must be pre-approved by the Division of Medicaid.  Costs for all services are reimbursable to Medicaid approved providers.  CMPDD employs Registered Nurses and Licensed Social Workers to coordinate and arrange for the provision of all E & D Waiver services.

This program is available in all of our service areas consisting of Hinds, Madison, Rankin, Warren, Yazoo, Copiah, and Simpson counties.
