Waiver programs provide home and community-based services to support participants as they work toward individually defined life outcomes, self-determination, community living, socialization, and economic self-sufficiency. Each waiver must be renewed every five (5) years. All renewals and requests to make changes to waiver programs are made by submitting a Waiver Renewal or Amendment application to the Federal Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Track change documents for the renewal proposals will be available on each Waiver program’s dedicated page listed below on or before September 1st:

The official public comments period is from September 6, 2022 through October 6, 2022. Public comments can be submitted to or mailed to the DDA Federal Program Unit at 201 West Preston Street, 4th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21201. Comments will be accepted beginning September 6, 2022, through October 6, 2022. To support the stakeholder input process and minimize public burden, comments for all three waivers should be submitted together under one response.
