In this workshop we cover the four main Home and Community Based (HCBS) or Medicaid waivers. We also discuss who is eligible for them, how to apply for them and what they fund. You will learn the steps needed to receive a Support Coordinator through the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) and what the wait list means to you.
