Child DD Waiver

The Child Developmental Disabilities Home and Community-Based Waiver allows for the provision of services that the regular state medicaid plan will not cover for eligible children with developmental disabilities in Wyoming. The Child DD Waiver began in July 1992 and is administered by the Developmental Disabilities Division.  Children ages birth through 20 years are eligible if they have been diagnosed with mental retardation or a related condition and meet the level of care for an ICF/MR. The goal of the waiver is to provide home and community based services that enable the child to stay in the local community rather than being institutionalized. The intent of the Waiver is to relieve pressures on families by assisting them in meeting the needs of their child with developmental disabilities.

The Child Waiver requires certain requirements in order to be successfully admitted onto the waiver. For futher details, please view and read the Psychological Requirements in PDF.
