Washington state currently has four 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 this general overview of Washington’s Medicaid waivers. See also the Informing Families website for services available throughout the lifespan.
For those already eligible for Medicaid, the Community First Choice option allows for additional services. Similarly, those who access Medicaid based on income or through waivers can receive home nursing care through the Medically Intensive Children’s Program.
