Statewide Waiver Program

Statewide Waiver

The Statewide Waiver (0128.R06) offers supports to adults with intellectual disabilities and children under age six with developmental delay who qualify for and, absent the provision of services provided under the Statewide Waiver, would require placement in a private Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID).

The Statewide Waiver offers a continuum of services that are selected by the person pursuant to a person-centered planning process and support each person’s independence and full integration into the community, including opportunities to seek employment, work in competitive integrated settings, and engage in community life. Services are delivered in a manner which ensures each individual’s rights of privacy, dignity, respect and freedom from coercion and restraint; optimizes individual initiative, autonomy, and independence in making life choices; and are delivered in a manner that comports fully with standards applicable to HCBS settings delivered under Section 1915(c) of the Social Security Act, including those requirements applicable to provider-owned or controlled homes, except as supported by the individual’s specific assessed need and set forth in the person-centered Individual Support Plan.

The Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) serves as the Operational Administrative Agency for this waiver, which is administered under the administrative oversight of TennCare.
