Home and Community Based Support

HCBS services are awarded to children and adults who have been diagnosed with a Intellectual Developmental Disability through an Illinois Medicaid Waiver program, after they have been selected from the PUNS list. The funds can be used for Developmental Training, Service Facilitation, and Personal Support Workers, who are chosen by the individual to assist at home or in the community to work on their own individual goals. MHCWI provides Service Facilitation, which includes, but is not limited to writing the Individual Service Plans, monitoring the implementation of the plan, and providing assistance with special funding requests through this waiver.
