This list contains all of the Medicaid waivers and other programs, regardless of type, available for children in the United States, ordered alphabetically by state. The list can display up to 100 programs and is sortable by state, program type, ages served, level of care, population served, and income waiver. Click on the state name to access detailed information about that state and its programs. Paid parent caregiving info is not in this table but can be found compiled in our Paid Parent Caregiver List.

  • Program Type information can be found in our About section.
  • Level of Care denotes what type of institution the child would require if not in the program, and can be a Hospital, Nursing Facility, or Intermediate Care Facility.
  • Income Waiver specifies whether or not the parents’ income is waived when applying to the program. A question mark means we are unsure.
