What Is a Waiver?
Medicaid waivers provide funding for children with developmental disabilities to receive services and support at their home, in a group home, or in a community setting.
Through our accredited Community Living and Support Services (CLASS) program, Damar provides a full continuum of highly individualized and life-changing supports for children and families. We work with our clients, their families, and other services agencies to empower those we serve to achieve personal independence.
Indiana provides Medicaid waivers for a variety of needs, including Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Autism, Traumatic Brain Injury, and the Aging and Disabled. Damar is an approved CARF accredited provider for the following waivers:
- Community Integration and Habilitation
- Family Supports
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Aged and Disabled
Money Follows the Person
Money Follows the Person is a grant-funded program that helps people with developmental, intellectual, and developmental disabilities return home after a stay in an institutional setting. Indiana was approved for this program in 2007, and can now assist eligible residents in leaving institutional care and transitioning to living safely within their chosen communities.

The CHOICE program provides community- and home-based services that helps those with disabilities remain in their homes and retain their independence for as long as possible.
