WV Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Waiver Program
The TBI Waiver Program is a long term care alterative which provides services that enable individuals to live at home rather than receiving nursing facility care. The program provides home and community-based services to West Virginia residents who are medically and financially eligible to participate in the program.
APS Healthcare Inc., contracted by BMS, is responsible for the day to day operations and oversight of the TBI Waiver program. This includes conducting the medical evaluations and determining medical eligibility for applicants and members of the program and performing provider agency certification.
