Individual Options (IO) Waiver
The IO waiver is a more comprehensive waiver which allows individuals to live in community settings of their choice with supports instead of living in an institution. The IO waiver has a higher funding limit and waiver services are developed in order to meet a person's individualized needs. Read more about the Prior Authorization process.
Individuals must meet Medicaid eligibility criteria and have an ICF level of care – there are no age requirements.
