The Community Alternatives Program for Children (CAP/C) provides cost-effective home care for medically fragile children (through age 20) who would otherwise require long-term hospital care or nursing facility care. The program contributes to the quality of life for the children and their families/caregivers, while providing care that is cost-effective in comparison to the Medicaid cost for institutional care.

Expiration of 30-Day Public Comments Period for Combined CAP/C and CAP/DA Waivers

The 30-day public posting of the CAP Waiver ended on September 28, 2015. All comments, questions and recommendations from the public posting will be carefully reviewed and considered for incorporation into the waiver. After the review of the comments and recommendations is completed, Division of Medicaid Assistance (DMA) will submit the waiver to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for review and approval. DMA anticipates the approval of the waiver by December 2015 with a retro-active waiver effective date of January 1, 2015.

Until the waiver is approved by CMS, current waiver practices and procedures will remain in place; continue to follow the guidelines, policies and directives of your current waiver.
