Home and Community-Based Services Waivers
Helping people with long-term care needs stay at home.
Home and community-based waivers are programs of in-home and community care that help Ohio Medicaid consumers remain at home instead of being in a nursing home, hospital or facility for people with mental retardation and/or developmental disabilities.
You may apply for any of the waivers below by completing forms JFS 07200 and JFS 02399 and sending them to your local county department of job and family services. In some cases, you may also apply for some of these waivers at your local county board of mental retardation/developmental disabilities (MRDD) or your local area agency on aging.
