West Virginia I/DD Waiver Program
Intellectual/Developmental Disability Waiver Program
Welcome to the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) Waiver Program (formerly the MR/DD Waiver Program). The I/DD Waiver Program is intended to provide services to support and assist members to live and be as independent as possible. These services are provided in natural settings, such as the home and community.
The WV I/DD Waiver Program is a federally approved program for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. The Program is operated in WV by the Bureau for Medical Services (BMS), who contracts APS Healthcare, Inc.—WV as the Administrative Services Organization (ASO). In addition to the ASO, BMS also contracts with a Medical Eligibility Contracted Agency (MECA) that determines member eligibility.
APS Healthcare, Inc. is responsible for the day-to-day operations and oversight of the I/DD Waiver program. This includes conducting Annual Functional Assessments, which are used to determine member yearly budgets and by the MECA to determine eligibility. In addition, APS conducts provider reviews, offers training and education to providers, members, and other stakeholders, and provides prior authorization for I/DD services requested.
