Nevada currently has a TEFRA program and two HCBS 1915(c) waivers that serve children. Only the Katie Beckett TEFRA program waives parent income. For a list of Nevada’s methods of accessing Medicaid for people who are disabled, see this overview.
Nevada previously charged a family fee or “parental reimbursement” for families who earn more than 200% of the federal poverty level. See this Parental Reimbursement Questionnaire. As of 2019, there was a moratorium on collection of these fees, so fees are not currently being collected.
Nevada also has a state-based program through a 1915(i) authority to provide intensive in-home services for children with behavioral or developmental disabilities already in Medicaid.
