We want you to stay well and live independently
Molina Healthcare is dedicated to getting you the help and care you need. If you qualify, there are Waiver Programs available which will provide you additional services to help you live independently. Molina Healthcare covers the waiver services in addition to your medical health care benefits.
The Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) has waiver services available for Members who qualify. DHS performs an assessment, called a determination of need (DON), to see if a Member qualifies for waiver services. If a Member qualifies for waiver services, the Member will be able to get additional home and community based services.
Members who qualify will get a Waiver Program Handbook Supplement (Long Term Services and Supports) with more information in their new Member welcome packet.
The Waiver Programs offer Long Term Services and Supports to help you live in your own home or in a community setting. Your case manager, also known as a care coordinator, will work with you, your family or guardian to find the right types of service. The case manager will also work to find the right amount and how long you will get those services. Not all services will be right for you. Once you agree to these services, your case manager will work with you to arrange them.
There are five waiver programs offered to eligible Molina Healthcare HealthChoice Illinois plan Members.
- The Elderly Waiver is for those people 60 years or older that live in the community. Learn more.
