The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) provides funding and oversight for Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waivers. This includes determining eligibility, providing service coordination for eligible people, monitoring services, and paying providers.
For information about available services, select the waiver you are interested in:
Otherwise, select the topic you are interested in. The Participant/Family and Provider sections contain information specific to those groups.
DDD also operates the Beatrice State Developmental Center, which is an intermediate care facility for persons with developmental disabilities (ICF/DD) and provides direct services in an institutional setting.
The National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) issued guidance for returning to services outside the home. This guidance is intended for state agencies, providers, families, participants, and other stakeholders. The goal is a carefully planned, safe, and phased approach to providing meaningful opportunities and support.
The Medicaid HCBS Waiver Appendix K amendments and extensions for waivers were approved by CMS. Appendix K is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and outline temporary changes to services.
