Medicaid HCBS Waiver Support for Students with Intellectual Disability Attending College: What’s Available in Your State?

Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waivers can provide support for individuals with intellectual disability participating in postsecondary education (PSE). HCBS waiver funding has been used to pay for peer support, career services, transportation, tuition, fees, and more (Parisi & Landau 2018). This Insight Brief explains how to access information on state HCBS waiver programs, how to review those programs, how to determine what waiver services can support PSE, and more.
