Medicaid Waivers for Children With Disabilities

Children and adults with disabilities who meet certain requirements may be eligible for funding for support services through Medicaid waivers. These waivers provide community services that can include, but are not limited to, personal care, respite care, day support, supported employment and assistive technology. Waiver eligibility is not based on the income of the parents.

The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board (CSB) provides eligibility screening for the three Developmental Disability Waivers. These waivers are the Building Independence, Family and Individual Supports and the Community Living Waiver. If your individual has a developmental disability diagnosis (inclusive of Intellectual Disability) and significant limitations in three or more categories of adaptive functioning, he or she may be eligible for any one of these waivers, depending upon the type of supports needed. The initial eligibility screening is the same for all Developmental Disability Waivers.

To schedule a screening, contact the Fairfax-Falls Church CSB at 703-324-7000 (TTY 711) and ask for an intake worker.

For more information on these waivers, see the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) website. If you are outside the Fairfax-Falls Church area, visit DBHDS to find your local CSB’s contact information.


Building Independence (BI) Waiver

Adults (18+) who are able to live independently in the community. Individuals own, lease or control their own living arrangements and supports are complemented by non-waiver-funded rent subsidies. Supports are episodic/periodic in nature.

Family and Individual Supports (FIS Waiver)

Community Living (CL) Waiver
