KATIE BECKETT WAIVER

 

The Katie Beckett Waiver, also known as the Deeming Waiver or the 2176 Model Waiver, enables severely disabled children and adults to be cared for at home and be eligible for Medicaid based on the individual’s income and assets alone. Without the waiver, the income of legally liable relatives is counted when the individual is cared for at home. There is a long waiting list for this program, but families of severely disabled individuals who want to care for their family member at home are encouraged to apply.

ELIGIBILITY
Severely disabled individuals; Income at or below 300% of the SSI federal benefit rate; Asset limit is $1000

For more information call the Medical Utilization Review Unit at the Connecticut State Department of Social Service.
