  • South Carolina State Medicaid Waiver Program Application Guide




    Waiver Overview
    : South Carolina has a bunch of different waivers but we are going to focus on the ones we think are the best fits for children with autism. You can check out this comprehensive comparison of the waivers for more info.

    Waiver #1: Intellectual Disabilities and Related Disabilities 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. There is a technical definition for this, but it really just means that the individual is unable to get through their day without a lot of supervision. Additionally the individual needs to be eligible or already receives medicaid

    What does the Goally Team Think?

    There is a waiting list for services but we couldn’t figure out how long it would take to get off of them. Based on our knowledge of other states it appears as though you may end up waiting years. No parent or child should have to wait that long for services.
