(1) Matching federal funds may be available through the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver for People with Physical Disabilities to provide an array of home and community-based services that an eligible person needs.
(2) Within appropriations from the Legislature, as set forth by UT Code Subsections 62A-5-102(3) and (4), persons with physical disabilities may be found eligible for Waiver funding according to the following methods:
(a) A person's needs score, as determined by the Division's needs assessment tool, identifies the person as ranking among persons with the most critical needs.
(b) A person who is eligible for waiver service through the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver for People with Disabilities is not eligible for respite services.
(3) Pursuant to Section R414-502, where the Department of Health determines that an applicant meets nursing facility level of care and is medically approved for Medicaid reimbursement of nursing facility services or equivalent care provided through a Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver program, an applicant may be found eligible for funding through the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver for People with Physical Disabilities when all other eligibility requirements of Section R414-502 are met.
(4) Persons who are found eligible for funds through the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Waiver for People with Physical Disabilities may choose not to participate in the Waiver. Persons who choose not to participate in the Waiver will receive only the state funded portion of the budget the person would have received had the person participated in the Waiver.
