Elderly Waiver (EW)
This program funds home and community-based services (HCBS) for people age 65 and older who require the level of care provided in a nursing home, but choose to reside in the community. These programs provide services and support for people to live in their homes or a community setting, and may delay or prevent nursing facility (NF) care. The purpose of these programs is to promote community living and independence with services and supports designed to address each person’s individual needs and choices. In the case of EW, the additional services go beyond what is otherwise available through Medical Assistance (MA).
The Elderly Waiver (EW) program is a federal Medicaid waiver program that funds home and community-based services for people age 65 and older who are eligible for Medical Assistance (MA) and require the level of care provided in a nursing home and choose to reside in the community. EW recipients can receive waiver services and/or MA services funded through a managed care organization (MCO). This can be through Minnesota Senior Care Plus (MSC+) or Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO).
