Connecticut currently has five waivers that are open to children, as the Early Childhood Autism Waiver has now expired. All are HCBS 1915(c) Medicaid waivers. Three of these programs waive parental income; we do not know the status of the others. For general information on Connecticut’s waivers for people with developmental disabilities, see this overview. Information on other waivers can be found here.
Connecticut has recently begun offering the Community First Choice Option for individuals already on Medicaid, who can receive personal care services regardless of age.
