States apply for Medicaid Waivers with the federal Medicaid agency known as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This enables states to waive the usual requirements that individuals must reside in an institution in order to receive Medicaid funding for services. In this way, Medicaid funds certain community-based alternatives to institutional care. Virginia has been offering Medicaid funded community based supports to individuals with intellectual disabilities through the ID Waiver since 1991, and the Day Support (DS) Waiver since July 2005.
