Full List

This list contains all of the Medicaid waivers, regardless of type, available for children in the United States, ordered alphabetically by state. The list can display up to 100 programs and is sortable by state, program type, ages served, level of care, population served, and income waiver. Click on the state name to access detailed information about that state and its programs. PLEASE NOTE: We are in the process of redoing our state pages, and some states may not yet be available.

  • Program Type information can be found in our About section.
  • Level of Care denotes what type of institution the child would require if not in the program, and can be a Hospital, Nursing Facility, or Intermediate Care Facility.
  • Income Waiver specifies whether or not the parents' income is waived when applying to the program. A question mark means we are unsure.
