Recorded webinar now available to view.

Tuesday, December 19, 2023

The West Virginia University Center for Excellence in Disabilities (WVU CED) Family to Family (F2F) program and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Services (DHHR) Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) presented about the West Virginia Waivers Program and its related services on December 15, 2024.

A Medicaid waiver does not have the same rules that normally apply to the Medicaid program. The Medicaid waiver program allows states to expand coverage, reduce costs, and improve care for people who would otherwise be in an institution, hospital, o​r nursing home. As a result, Medicaid members can make the choice to remain home with family, and caregivers can receive help with care services.

For Medicaid members living at home, like seniors, people with disabilities, and children with serious emotional disorders who require assistance, there are four waiver programs available and additional supplemental programs.

This webinar shares information about the following WV Waiver Programs and related services:
