FAQs

What is a Waiver?

Waiver and Alternative Care (AC) programs provide home- and community-based services (HCBS) to meet the needs of people with disabilities and older adults. People must be Minnesota residents and meet the eligibility requirements specific to each waiver/AC program.

Can I qualify for a waiver?

Yes; waiver/AC programs must meet federal and other guidelines, which include:
•     Eligibility requirements
•     Funding parameters and limits
•     County, tribal nation, and/or state policies
•     Services available

Each waiver/AC program is based on an agreement between DHS and the federal government (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services [CMS]). These agreements are called waiver plans or AC protocols.

While DHS manages the waiver/AC programs, lead agencies administer the programs. Lead agencies include counties, tribal nations, and managed care organizations (MCOs).
