About Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver:

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) Home and Community Based Services Waivers are a way for individuals to receive services in their home instead of an institution.   These Waivers are a federal state partnership.  They are run by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through MassHealth (Medicaid) which pays for health care and services in the home for individuals living in Massachusetts who have limited income.
