Public comment is being sought on an amendment to terminate the Medicaid 1915(c) Technology Dependent waiver effective July 1, 2023.  

The Technology Dependent waiver was designed to serve adults who are ventilator dependent at least 22 hours per day that can self-direct their care. The Technology Dependent waiver has not been used since 2018. It was approved to serve up to three (3) people at one time but has never had a census of more than one recipient. Terminating the waiver will not impact any Medicaid members. 

The Department of Health and Human Services Aging Services Section will continue to serve eligible individuals who are technology dependent through other federal and state funded in-home and community-based services it administers.   

Comments and public input on the waiver amendment application will be accepted from March 1, 2023 to March 31, 2023 at 5 p.m. Central Time. Comments will be accepted in the following ways:
