MEDICAID WAIVER SERVICES
Waiver services in Montana include a wide variety of services that can be purchased by an individual through a qualified provider or self-directed by an individual or a family. These are services that provide direct support to individuals to assure they are able to live, work, and access the community in an environment of their choice. A Case Manager in your area can help explain waiver services.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Montana is not an entitlement state for DDP funded waiver services. The State of Montana's Developmental Disability Program has a waiting list for individuals. Eligibility determination can take up to three months while receiving waiver services can take an estimated four to six years. To facilitate the process, and obtain more information, contact the DDP office in your area for more information prior to reaching the age of 16 or moving to the State of Montana.
