The NHTD waiver uses Medicaid funding to provide supports and services to assist individuals with disabilities and seniors toward successful inclusion in the community.

Private Duty Care

Patient receives nursing services at home from Registered Nurses (RNs) or Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs).  Patient may receive continuous nursing services beyond the scope of care available from certified home health care agencies (CHHAs).  

For Medicaid-eligible recipients, after a physician provides written orders or a letter of medical justification, a certified home health agency or a local social services office provides a written assessment of the need for private duty nursing and authorizes a specific number of hours of care.  This program is available through Medicaid, private payment, and some health insurers.

Private Duty Services Include:

  • Licensed Practitioner Nurse (LPN)

  • Certified Home Health Aide (CHHA)

  • Personal Care Aide (PCA)

Waiver participants may choose to move into the community from a nursing facility. Others may choose to participate in the waiver to prevent unnecessary institutionalization.

TBI Waiver Services Include:

  • Structured Day Program (SDP)

  • Independent Living Skills Training (ILST)
