Use of Medicaid Waivers to Support Students with Intellectual Disability in College

Use of Medicaid Waivers to Support Students with Intellectual Disability in College

An increasing number of states allow students with intellectual disability (ID) to use Medicaid Home and Community Based Services waivers to support participation in postsecondary education
(PSE) programs. These waiver services support access to higher education for students receiving Medicaid services who might otherwise not be able to attend postsecondary education. This Insight Brief explains what Medicaid Waivers are, what PSE services they can be used for, and how to access waiver services.
