NC INNOVATIONS WAIVER
The NC Innovations Waiver is a Federally approved 1915 C Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services Waiver (HCBS Waiver) designed to meet the needs of Individuals with Intellectual or Development Disabilities (I/DD) who prefer to get long-term care services and supports in their home or community, rather than in an institutional setting.
The Medicaid Innovations Waiver supports Individuals with I/DD to live the life they choose. Waiver services are administered by a local management entity/managed care organization (Trillium Health Resources) which facilitates services and oversees a network of community-based service providers. Individuals who receive waiver funding work with their team to develop a Person Centered Plan of Care and request the services and supports they need. NC Innovations provides many different services that you can use based on your Individual Support Plan (ISP). Pathways Behavioral Health Service Inc offers a variety of services to the families we support.
These services and supports include well-trained, screened staff (habilitation technicians) working with participants in their homes and out in the community. Habilitation technicians 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.
The Individual and Community Services team supports individuals living with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD). We provide one-to-one services uniquely tailored to help each unique person acquire and maintain daily living skills.
Community Living and Supports (CLS) promotes home and community inclusion with home and community-based principles that focus on individual’s personal desires to live in their own homes or with family members.
