The Children’s Home and Community Based Services Waiver provides Medicaid coverage for children with disabilities. 


To qualify the child must:

  • Be ineligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) due to family income or resources above the limits set by the Social Security Administration.
  • Have a disability and the disability must place the child at risk of nursing facility or hospital placement.
  • Be under 18.
  • Meet functional eligibility criteria set by the State of Colorado.


A child cannot be on the waiting list for Children’s HCBS while receiving Medicaid through the Buy-In Program or other means.  The state's Children's Waiver Chart gives additional details.
