Delaware currently has two programs that are open to children. One is an HCBS 1915(c) Medicaid waiver, and one is a TEFRA or TEFRA-like program. Delaware also provides community-based services through an 1115 waiver program, DSHP-Plus. While most of these services are for adults, the program recently added pediatric respite and self-directed personal care services for children, including those provided by parents and guardians. The program also provides access to Medicaid for children at a slightly lower level of care than those eligible for TEFRA.
Delaware also offers some employment related and personal care home and community based services to those already enrolled in Medicaid, ages 14-25, through a 1915(i) program.
