Virginia

Virginia currently has three Medicaid waivers that can serve children, and all of them are home and community based 1915(c) waivers. All waivers are based only on child income without regard to parent income. For more information, see Virginia's Long Term Care and Waivers Service page. For Developmental Disability waivers, see this information.

Virginia recently merged the Technology Assisted Waiver and the Elderly or Disabled Waiver together into Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus. This waiver also includes a managed care component.

Virginia also has several adult-only waivers, including Building Independence and the Alzheimer's Assisted Living Waiver.
