Waiver Lists/ Interest Lists/ Community Services Interest Lists (CSIL)

by | Oct 22, 2022 | Resources

“Waivers” let the states use Medicaid funds for long-term home and community-based services for people with disabilities to help them live in the community (Rather than an institution) Called “waivers” because certain Medicaid requirements are waived (for example family income)

Designed to help with the services like personal care, nursing care, home/car modifications, respite care, and therapies

Texas has seven waivers, each with its own interest list. Consider placing your child on each interest list based on their diagnosis because you don’t know their future needs. (They can be declined) Some have a 15-year waiting list in Texas.

Waivers are managed by the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and the Department of State Health Services (DSHS).
