DD Regulations and HCBS Medicaid Waivers
 
Regulations
Developmental disabilities services must comply with the following regulations, as applicable:
Medicaid Waivers
The Division of Developmental Disabilities administers two Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waivers. Waivers allow the State of Nebraska to utilize federal Medicaid funding for services in the community that were originally only offered in institutions.
 
When a services participant is on a waiver, the state receives federal dollars to help pay for those services. This helps state funds stretch so the Division can fund services for more people.
 
Waiver eligibility is separate from eligibility for services.  To be eligible for a waiver, a participant must:
  • Apply for Medicaid, be eligible, and accept if qualified. To apply for Medicaid:
  • Have needs requiring services offered by Intermediate Care Facilities for persons with developmental disabilities (ICF/DD)
  • Have yearly Level of Care assessment to determine needs
  • Have a physical exam yearly, with a report sent to the Division
HCBS Waivers Available for People with Developmental Disabilities   - A quick look at the four Medicaid HCBS waivers that are available.    (en Español)
 
A participant can only be on one waiver at a time. A participant may be on one waiver while waiting for availability of a different waiver.

  • Comprehensive Developmental Disabilities (CDD) Waiver (4154) - Allows persons of all ages with developmental disabilities to maximize their independence as they live, work, socialize, and participate to the fullest extent possible in their communities.
