New Jersey offers a variety of services to consumers under its Medicaid Waiver. These programs may provide a combination of both traditional medical services (i.e. dental services, skilled nursing services) as well as non-medical services (i.e. respite, case management, and environmental modifications) to those who meet both the established clinical and financial criteria. The purpose of the Waiver is to provide support services to an individual in the community to:
- Prevent placement in an institutional setting (e.g. nursing home or hospital) or
- Provide support to individuals who are reentering a community setting after a period of institutionalization.
