Frail Elderly Waiver Amendment

Home and Community Based Waiver for the Frail Elderly Amendment: New Service Level 4 for Augmented Personal Care

The Augmented Personal Care (APC) Service is available to Frail Elderly (FE) Waiver recipients residing at a licensed residential facility for groups or assisted living. A new 4th Service Level of Care was authorized for behaviorally complex recipients receiving services under the APC.


 The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that states obtain public input for a waiver amendment in accordance with 42 CFR 441.304(f). The DHCFP requests public comment regarding the amendment due to the addition of the new Service Level 4 definition and qualifications; and correction to the number of legislatively approved waiver slots.
