Waiver Eligibility

Who Qualifies for Waiver?

Applicants must meet the following 5 criteria for qualification:

4. The applicant's income must fall within the financial guidelines for Indiana Medicaid long-term care.

5. The applicant's countable resources must fall within current state guidelines. As of 2023, a single applicant’s countable assets must not exceed $2,000 in value. However, some assets are exempt from being factored into the $2000 limit. Exempt assets include equity in one's primary home up to $595,000, one's primary vehicle, home furnishings, and personal items.
