What is a waiver?

Waivers are government programs that help people live more independently at home and in their communities.  There are many types of waivers.  The requirements and services vary depending on what type of waiver it is.  Your supports coordinator can help you figure out which type will be most helpful to you.  You can also find information about waivers on the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services website.
