New York currently has two Medicaid waivers that accept children. Both waivers are HCBS 1915(c) waivers and waive parent income. For general information on children’s waiver programs in New York, see this brochure on Children’s HCBS or access the Front Door, New York’s gateway to services for people with developmental disabilities.
In 2019, New York combined several waivers to form a new Children’s Waiver. The terminated waivers include the three Bridges waivers for children in foster care, OMH SED (mental health), and the Care at Home waivers.
