Kids' Waivers

Your Source for Children's Medicaid Waiver Programs

Oklahoma Medicaid Waivers

Oklahoma currently has three waivers/programs that serve children, including a TEFRA program and two home and community based 1915(c) waivers. The TEFRA program waives parent income, the Community waiver does not, and we are unsure of the deeming status of the In-Home Supports waiver. See Oklahoma's HCBS Waivers page for general information.

Oklahoma also has several adult-only waivers, including Advantage Waiver, Homeward Bound, In-Home Supports Waiver for Adults, Medically Fragile, My Life My Choice, and Sooner Services.
