New Medically Fraigle Technology Dependent Children’s Waiver (MFTD) Approved!

We are thrilled to announce that a new MFTD Waiver was approved by the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) this week!  The new program is nearly identical to the previous program.  All of the troubling issues, such as income caps, cost sharing, personal attendant use, and level of care reductions, have been resolved.  We are very appreciative to both CMS and Illinois’ Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) for creating a safe and fair program that allows our children to remain at home!

We only wonder what impact the 1115 Medicaid Transformation Waiver will have on the MFTC Waiver.

Here is link to the approved waiver application(138 pp):
