Title XIX Home and Community Based Waiver Program
The Waiver Title XIX Program is a federal- and state-funded Medicaid strategy to deliver services to individuals with an intellectual and developmental disability in their home and community surroundings. The program is designed as an alternative to receiving services in an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF/MR) facility.
Under this program, Seneca Health Services uses a person-centered approach to provide support services to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other related conditions. The goal is to achieve the highest level of independence and self-sufficiency possible within their homes and communities.
Seneca Health Services provides a number of essential services under the Waiver Title XIX Program: Service Coordination, Behavior Support Specialist, Therapeutic Consultant, Person-Centered Support: Family and Agency, Respite Care, Residential ISS, and Skilled Nursing Services.
The Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities and the Bureau for Medical Services determine eligibility for Waiver Title XIX Services.
