Oregon

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 recently implemented a 1915(k) waiver or Community Choice Program. Many children are now receiving services through this program instead of the below waivers. 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.

Oregon also has 2 adult-only waivers, Adults HCBS and Aged and Physically Disabled.
