Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)

Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) (formerly called Waiver services) are offered as a Medicaid Program through the Department of Human Services.  Home and Community Based Services are offered to individuals with special needs who need support.  Each individual on the Waiver must be eligible for Medicaid and must also meet the requirements for their specific Waiver.  The state of Iowa currently has seven HCBS Waivers.  Opportunities Unlimited provides services under the following waivers:
