HCBS Waiver Providers

The Office of Long Term Care is responsible for ensuring that all providers of 1915(c) home and community based waiver services for the following waivers meet enrollment requirements as documented in the CMS approved waiver applications.

Agencies may currently apply to enroll as providers of Personal Care services, In-Home Respite services or Adult Day Care services under the Elderly & Disabled (E&D) Waiver or Assisted Living services under the Assisted Living (AL) Waiver.

All potential E&D Waiver providers must complete mandatory provider orientation prior to submitting a provider proposal to the Office of Long Term Care for review. The orientation is now available virtually and the presentation can be viewed here.

Please email or call 601-359-6141 with any questions. Provider type specific proposals as well as the associated Quality Assurance Standards are linked below.
