What is the Innovation’s Waiver?
The Innovations Waiver for Persons with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) is a special Medicaid community care funding source. The Innovations Waiver combines federal and state funds to provide a cost-effective alternative to care in an intermediate care facility.
The goal of the Innovations Waiver is to allow individuals to live in the community with as much independence as possible. Available throughout North Carolina, Innovations Waiver can provide one-on-one services and supports for each participant, based on the individual’s assessed needs.
These services and supports include well-trained, screened staff working with participants in their homes and out in the community. Direct support professionals assist participants with such objectives as gross/fine motor skills, behavior, socialization skills, self-help skills, play skills, language and communication and academics.
Also covered, as needed, are respite, family training, supported employment, fences and alarm systems (for individuals at risk for wandering), and ramps and other home and vehicle modifications.
