The Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD):
(NHTD) Medicaid waiver is a Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) program. The NHTD waiver provides services to assist individuals with disabilities, and seniors, toward successful inclusion in the community. Waiver participants may come from a nursing facility or other institution (transition) or choose to participate in the waiver to prevent institutionalization (diversion). Waiver services are provided when informal supports, local, state, and other federally funded services are not sufficient to assure the health and welfare of the individual in the community.
The Home and Community Based Services Medicaid Waiver for Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (HCBS/TBI):
The TBI waiver uses Medicaid funding to provide supports and services to assist individuals with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) toward successful inclusion in the community. Waiver participants may choose to move into the community from a nursing facility. Others may choose to participate in the waiver to prevent unnecessary institutionalization. HCBS/TBI waiver services are available to supplement informal supports; the broad array of local, State and federally funded services, as well as Medicaid State Plan services to assure the health and welfare of the individual in the community.
Home and Community Support Services (HCSS):
HCSS are the combination of personal care services (Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs)) with oversight and /or supervision as a discrete service.
Services are provided primarily in a participant’s home.
HCSS is provided to a waiver participant who requires assistance with personal care services tasks and whose health and welfare in the community is at risk because oversight and/or supervision of the participant is required even when no personal care task is being performed.
