New York State DOH
NHTD and TBI Waiver Programs
Medicaid and Managed Care have begun to implement state-wide waiver programs designed to promote greater independence and well-being for program participants, and more seamless integration into the community.
Two such waiver programs are the NHTD (Nursing Home Transition and Diversion) Waiver Program and the TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) Waiver Program.
NY service providers who wish to serve these participants must submit a detailed application, supply a set of stand-alone policies specific to the waiver program they are applying for, and obtain an appropriate Medicaid provider number.
