CMS Approves MDCP Waiver Amendment 6

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved the Medically Dependent Children Program (MDCP) Waiver Amendment 6 (PDF). This amendment expands the Consumer Directed Services option to minor home modifications and adaptive aids. These services will become operational in the CDS option on Dec. 1, 2020.

This implementation delay gives more time for completion of necessary operational system updates. Adaptive aids and minor home modifications are currently available for MDCP members through the provider agency service delivery option.

See the HHS Waiver Applications page for a copy of the approved MDCP amendment. Email mdcppolicy@hhsc.state.tx.us with any questions.
