West Virginia

West Virginia currently has three Medicaid waivers/programs that can serve children, including a TEFRA program and two home and community based 1915(c) waivers. The TEFRA program is based only on child income without regard to parent income, while the DD and TBI waivers do count parent income. For more information, see West Virginia's Medicaid Waivers page.

West Virginia also has an adult-only waiver for Aged and Disabled.
