Waivers

What are waivers?

Waivers are one way to pay for services that support someone with developmental disabilities. The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities administers three different waivers: the Individual Options Waiver, the Level One Waiver, and the Self-Empowered Life Funding Waiver. 

More than 40,000 Ohioans with developmental disabilities are enrolled on a waiver, with access to services while living on their own, with family, with a roommate, or with a paid caregiver.

How do I know if I’m eligible for a waiver?

All waiver services provided to a person must be medically necessary. Individuals need to have a Waiting List Assessment completed to help identify areas of need. The Licking County Board of DD has a Waiting List Coordinator on staff to complete these assessments for people we support. Please contact your Service Coordinator if you are interested in scheduling an assessment.
