Oregon currently has four waivers that serve children, all of which are home and community based 1915(c) waivers. Three of these waivers waive parent income; we are uncertain of the how parent income is considered for the Children’s HCBS waiver. See this CIIS page for an overview Oregon’s intensive in-home programs for children, or this page on Developmental Disability services.
Oregon uses a 1915(k) waiver or Community Choice Program to provide many children and adults already in Medicaid with in-home services. For more information on this program, see K Plan Information. These services are available to all children who meet eligibility standards without a waiting list.
As of 11/2023, Oregon is seeking approval for a new 1915(c) waiver, Children’s Extraordinary Needs Waiver, which will allow for paid parent caregivers for children with high medical and behavioral needs. See this information.
