Aged and Disabled Medicaid Waiver

The Aged and Disabled Medicaid Waiver program in Nebraska is a service system based upon the belief that people with care needs should have options for receiving services. After thorough needs identification and service planning, eligible persons are offered the choice of receiving home and community-based services or entering a nursing home. This waiver allows Medicaid money to be used to purchase services that are not usually considered \"medical\".

This briefing paper focuses primarily on Medicare issues related to individuals receiving Social Security disability benefits.
