Children's Medicaid Waiver Programs

Medicaid waivers for children are unfortunately quite confusing. Not only that, but it is impossible to find information about them. This project, coordinated by Complex Child Magazine, is intended to simplify the process as much as possible. Our first goal was to create a full list of current Medicaid waivers for children. We then created individual state pages that provide additional information and links for each program.  We hope to provide a comprehensive resource of all Medicaid waivers for children, including 1915(c) HCBS waivers, 1115 demonstration waivers, TEFRA/Katie Beckett programs, and state-based programs.
