The Alabama Medicaid Agency is seeking public comment on its proposal to renew the Alabama Home and Community-Based Intellectual Disabilities Waiver (ID Waiver).

The waiver supports Alabama citizens who have a diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities and who would otherwise require the level of care offered in an Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) institution to remain in the community. The waiver provides services such as day services and in-home supports.

A copy of the proposed changes can be found on the Alabama Medicaid Agency website. Click here to view waiver documents
