Wisconsin currently has two Medicaid waivers/programs that can serve children, including a TEFRA program and a home and community based 1915(c) waiver. All programs are based only on child income without regard to parent income. For more information, see Wisconsin’s page on Services for Children with Delays or Disabilities.
Wisconsin charges a Parental Payment for children who participate in the Children’s Long Term Support waiver. This payment is only charged for families with children between 0 and 18 years of age. The payment is a percentage of the costs of the program, ranging from 0-41%, depending on family income. Children in the TEFRA Katie Beckett program have no parental payments. More information on Parental Payments can be found on the What Does It Cost? page.
