Nevada

Nevada currently has a TEFRA program and two HCBS 1915(c) waivers that serve children. Only the Katie Beckett TEFRA program waives parent income. For a list of Nevada's methods of accessing Medicaid for people who are disabled (MAABD program), see this overview.

Nevada charges a family fee or "parental reimbursement" for families in all three waivers who earn more than 200% of the federal poverty level. See this Parental Reimbursement Worksheet.

Nevada also has an adult-only waiver for Frail Elderly.
