The home- and community-based services (HCS) program promotes and maintains consumer and family involvement in providing individualized program development and community support services for individuals with an intellectual disability. The HCS program is a Medicaid waiver program and provides services and supports to eligible individuals as an alternative to intermediate care placement.
An individual must have a determination of intellectual disability or a related condition, Medicaid and SSI eligibility, and their Plan of Care must meet program guidelines.
