Medicaid Waiver Services
HTC is certified to provide a variety of services for both the Individual Options (IO) and Level 1 waivers including:
Homemaker / Personal Care
Homemaker/Personal care means the coordinated provision of a variety of services, supports and supervision necessary for the health and welfare of an individual which enables the individual to live in the community. These are tasks directed at increasing the independence of the individual within his/her home or community. The service includes tasks directed at the individual’s immediate environment that are necessitated by his or her physical or mental condition (including emotional and/or behavioral) and is of a supportive or maintenance type. This service will help the individual meet daily living needs, and without this service, alone or in combination with other waiver services, the individual would require institutionalization.
Residential respite means services provided to individuals unable to care for themselves that are furnished on a short-term basis because of the absence or need for relief of those persons who normally provide care for the individuals. Residential respite shall only be provided in the following locations: An Intermediate Care Facility for the Mentally Retarded (ICF/MR), a residential facility other than an ICF/MR and licensed by the department or a residence other than an ICF/MR where residential respite is provided by an agency provider.
Remote Monitoring / Equipment
Remote monitoring means the monitoring of an individual in his or her residence by staff using one or more of the following systems: live video feed, live audio feed, motion sensing system, radio frequency identification, web-based monitoring system, or other devices approved by the department.
Remote monitoring equipment means the equipment used to operate systems such as live video feed, live audio feed, motion sensing system, radio frequency identification, web-based monitoring system, or other device approved by the department. It also means the equipment used to engage in live two-way communication with the individual being monitored.
Adult Family Living
Adult family living means personal care and supportive services provided to an adult by a caregiver who is related to and lives with the individual receiving the services. Adult Family Living is provided in conjunction with residing in the home and is part of the rhythm of life that naturally occurs when people live together as a family. Due to the environment provided by living together as a family, segregating these activities into discrete services is impractical.
Non Medical Transportation
Non-medical transportation means transportation that is used by waiver enrollees solely to access adult day support, vocational habilitation, supported employment-enclave, and/or supported employment-community services as specified by their individual service plan (ISP). Whenever possible, family, friends, neighbors or community agencies who can provide this service without charge shall be used.
Supported Living is defined as assistance directed toward individuals with disabilities, which enables them to live as independently as possible in their own communities, with supports as they choose.
These are but a few of our services. Please contact us with any specific request.
