Because your child has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, they may qualify for two different waivers under the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration. Basically what that means is that they are eligible to receive coverage through Medicaid because of their disability regardless of parental income.
You can only have one waiver at a time, however when you apply you will go on the waiting list for the Family Support Waiver. If it is deemed necessary to move your child to the Community Habilitation Waiver, that will be determined when your child becomes eligible to receive waiver services. Keep in mind that this is not something that will help your child right away, however, once they have the waiver they will likely have it for life, so it is a good way to prepare for their future needs.
