Unless otherwise noted, services are delivered under the guidelines of the WVDHHR Medicaid I/DD Waiver Program.

Eligibility Process

To qualify for IDD Waiver services, individuals in West Virginia must meet specific criteria: they must meet medical and financial eligibility requirements, be at least three years old, provide proof of residency in the state, and opt for Home and Community-Based Services over institutional care.

To apply for IDDW services, follow the steps below:

  • Step 1 – Complete Waiver Application here (link to application)
  • Step 2 – Schedule and complete an independent psychological evaluation with an approved provider. A list of approved providers will be sent to you by the state and your evaluation must be completed within 14 days of receiving this list.
  • Step 3 – the psychologist will send the evaluation to the state within 60 days of completion.
  • Step 4 - Based on the results of the independent psychological evaluation, the state will make a determination regarding medical eligibility and will notify the applicant and/or their legal representative within 30 days of receipt of the evaluation.
  • Step 5 – If the application is approved, there is an open IDDW slot, and the financial eligibility has been determined, the applicant is enrolled. If there is not an open IDDW slot, the applicant is placed on waitlist until a funded slot is available
  • Step 5 – If the applicant is determined not be medically eligible by the state, a written notice of denial, a request for a Medicaid Fair Hearing form, and a copy of the psychological evaluation is sent to the applicant and/or legal representative via certified mail.
  • Step 6 – If the applicant wishes to appeal the decision, they must submit the request for a Fair Hearing to the Board of Review within 90 days of receipt of the Notice of Denial.
