Guide to Home and Community-based Services in Texas Now Available

Guide to Home and Community-based Services in Texas Now Available

Do families of children with disabilities ask you for help finding services and supports for their children in their own homes and communities?

Do you know adults with disabilities who need support so they can get or keep a job? Live independently? Transition from a public school special education program?

Do you know people who are elderly and want to get services and supports in their own homes rather than in a nursing home?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, HHSC has developed a guide you can use in talking with families, youth and adults with disabilities, and people who are elderly about home and community-based services that may be available to them through Texas Medicaid. This guide, “Home and Community-based Services: Which Programs Do What?” provides information about six programs that provide home and community-based services. These programs are sometimes called “Medicaid waivers” or “waiver services.”

You can download it in both English and Spanish .
