Waiver Information

Medicaid Waivers can be the key to funding for people with disabilities. Different types of waivers are available to people with disabilities and health complications. The waivers can pay for a variety of services, possibly even those not typically covered by insurance.

Many programs at Wabash Center are eligible for funding through Medicaid Waiver. We will be most pleased to help you navigate through your options.

We encourage families to apply for Medicaid Waiver for their eligible family member as soon as they learn the diagnosis of a disability. The eligibility rules and regulations can be quite complex. Again, we are most willing to help you navigate the process.

For assistance and guidance on any Medicaid questions, please contact Dawn Barngrover
