  • Utah State Medicaid Waiver Program Application Guide

    Waiver #1: Community Supports Waiver For Individuals with ID and Other Related Conditions

    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. You can view more specific eligibility requirements HERE

    Income: Income eligibility 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?

    Behavioral Consultation, Chore Services, Companion Services, Day Supports, Emergency Response Systems, Environmental Adaptations, Extended Living Supports, Family/Ind. Training and Preparation, Financial Management Services, Homemaker Services, Living Start-up Costs, Massage Therapy, Medication Monitoring, Non-medical Transportation, Personal Assistance, Personal Budget Assistance, Residential Habilitation, Respite Care, Specialized Medical Equipment, Supported Employment, Supported Living, Waiver Support Coordination

    How do I apply?

    Call the Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD): (801) 538-4200

    Note that there is a 5 year waitlist

    What does the Goally Team Think?

    No parent should have to wait 5 years to start receiving services. The Comprehensive Waiver simply does not have enough funding and an additional autism waiver that Utah is being eliminated currently. This lack of access is terrible and needs to be changed. The Comprehensive Waiver is great when you’re on it, but terrible before that point.
