Children's Long-Term Support Waivers

The Children's Long-Term Support Home and Community-Based Medicaid Waivers (CLTS Waivers) provide a structure within which Medicaid funding is available to support children who are living at home or in the community and who have substantial limitations in multiple daily activities as a result of one or more of the following disabilities: developmental disabilities, severe emotional disturbances, and physical disabilities. Funding can be used to support a range of different services that are identified based on an individual assessment of the child and his or her needs.

Wisconsin has three separate CLTS Waivers, one for each category of disability: developmental disabilities, severe emotional disabilities, and physical disabilities. Some children will qualify for more than one Waiver, in which case the family and their service coordinator will determine which one Waiver is the most appropriate source of funding for their specific child.
