DD Waiver

The IFDDS Waiver (DD Waiver) provides services to individuals who are 6 years of age and older who have a related condition and do not have a diagnosis of Intellectual Disability who (1) meet the Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled or Persons with related conditions (ICF/ID) level of care criteria (2) are determined to be at imminent risk of ICF/ID placement, and (3) are determined that community-based care services under the DD Waiver are the critical services that enable the individual to remain at home rather than being placed in an ICF/ID.

A related condition is a severe chronic disability, closely related to Intellectual Disability because this condition results in impairment of general intellectual functioning or adaptive behavior, one which manifested before the person reaches age 22, likely to continue indefinitely and results in functional limitation in 3 or more following categories: health status, communication, task learning skills, personal/self care, mobility, behavior, and community living skills. Examples of related conditions may include but not limited to cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, shaken baby syndrome, autism, spina bifida and epilepsy.
