  • Oregon State Medicaid Waiver Program Application Guide

    Children’s Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver

    Who can apply?

    Circumstance/Diagnosis: Any child or adult who is diagnosed with either an intellectual and/or developmental disability (this includes autism). The state requires that individuals need an intermediate care facility level of care to qualify. This just means that the individual is unable to get through their day without a lot of supervision.

    Income: We couldn’t find any definitive information on income eligibility, but for most programs in other states this is only based on the child’s income and not the parents income. This means that your child is financially eligible for the waiver if they don’t have an income.

    What do I get?

    Relief care for family caregivers; • Training to help you meet your child’s needs; • Help with everyday activities like preparing meals, bathing or feeding your child; • Change to make your home more accessible for your child; • Help with behavior challenges; and • Some technological supports, and much more!

    How do I apply?

    Contact your local Community Developmental Disabilities Program or call 503-945-5811. They can inform you of different options Oregon has like the K-Plan.

    What does the Goally Team Think?

    Oregon’s website isn’t the best but the services they provide are top notch. Oregon has a great network of Community Developmental Disabilities Programs that provide fantastic services and case management for residents. We have even had several case managers work with us to get Goally for their clients cost free! Make sure to call your local program and ask about the K-Plan, you may be able to get funding without having to go through a tedious medicaid process.
