What is the Traumatic Brain Injury Medicaid Waiver?

The New York State Department of Health (DOH) Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) waiver program provides services to persons with a TBI. HouseCalls Home Care will help persons with a TBI live in the community setting of their choice. This program is funded by Medicaid.

To enroll in the TBI waiver, you must

  • Be a Medicaid recipient;
  • Choose to live in the community rather than in a nursing facility;
  • Be between 18 and 64 years old at the time you apply for waiver services 1;
  • Have a primary diagnosis of TBI or similar non-degenerative condition that results in deficits similar to a TBI such as stroke, or anoxia (oxygen supply loss);
  • Be assessed to need nursing home level of care; and
  • Have an approved plan of available services that reflects the services you need in order for you to live safely in the community.

In the TBI Medicaid waiver, a Service Coordinator assists you with developing a service plan designed to help you reach your personal goals for living and receiving care, and for achieving maximum independence in your home community. The waiver services in your plan are determined by your strengths, needs, and choice for care.

HouseCalls Home Care Services included in the TBI Waiver are:

What is the NHTD waiver program?

The NHTD waiver program is a home and community-based program that helps New York´s Medicaid-eligible seniors and people with physical disabilities receive comprehensive services they need while they live in a community-based setting, rather than in a nursing home, congregate care setting, or other institution.

HouseCalls Home Care provide services to program participants based on their unique strengths, needs, choices, and goals. The participants are the primary decision makers. Participants choose the services they receive, the service providers they will work with, and the outcomes they will achieve.

Contingent upon the availability of funds, waiver participants may also be eligible for a state-funded housing subsidy to help them live in the community. The subsidy is administered through the NHTD program; however, the provision of housing is not a waiver service.

The NHTD Medicaid waiver was developed based on the philosophy that individuals with physical disabilities and seniors have the same rights as others. This includes the right to be in control of their own lives, encounter and manage risks and learn from their experiences. This is balanced with the waiver program´s responsibility to ensure the waiver participants´ health and welfare in the community.
