    Waiver Information

    Waivers offer an array of services and benefits such as choice of qualified providers, due process, and health and safety assurances.

    The name waiver comes from the fact that the federal government "waives" Medical Assistance/Medicaid rules for institutional care in order for Pennsylvania to use the same funds to provide supports and services for people closer to home in their own communities.

    In Pennsylvania, the Department of Public Welfare administers multiple Medical Assistance/Medicaid waivers. Each waiver has its own unique set of eligibility requirements and services.

    Please use the links at the bottom of the page to review each of the waivers.
