Waivers are agreements between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and a state's Medicaid agency and serve specific groups of people.

Waivers specify:

  • Number of participants to be served
  • Eligibility criteria
  • Available services, including any limits on services
  • Procedures for the evaluation and re-evaluation of the level of care

Waivers give eligible people options if their needs can be met in their homes, and if providing services in a home and community setting is cost neutral compared to institutional services.
