Missouri

Missouri currently has four HCBS 1915(c) waivers that serve children. Only the waiver for persons with developmental disabilities waives parent income. For a general overview of programs, see their Home and Community Based Waivers page.

Recently, Missouri's autism waiver was allowed to expire, and those needing ongoing services were moved to the Community Support Waiver.

Missouri also has several adult-only waivers, including AIDS, Independent Living, Medically Fragile Adult, Aged and Disabled, and Adult Day Care.
