Kentucky Medical Waivers Webinar

Join us on April 21st for a Kentucky Medical Waivers webinar presented by Compliance Auditor-RN and CMS guidelines and policy expert, Abigail Kessinger.


This free webinar will cover the variety of different waivers available, the services they offer, how to apply, who is eligible and Q&A session at the end.

If your child has a disability, you may qualify​ for a 1915(c) Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Medicaid waiver. These waivers provide the support individuals need to live as independently as possible. 

However, understanding the waivers that are available to you and how to apply for them can be overwhelming. This webinar is aimed to help you navigate through the complicated system.


Some of the waivers that will be covered include:

  • Home and Community Based Waiver (HCBW)
  • Supports for Community Living (SCL)
  • Model Waiver II
  • Michelle P (MPW)
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), Acquired Brain Injury Long Term Care (ABI LTC)


Register to learn more. For your convenience, this webinar will be available at multiple times. We hope you can attend one!


  • A virtual link will be provided in an email after you register.
