MFTD Waiver Families

Support for families of children in the Medically Fragile, Technology Dependent Waiver

New MFTD Waiver Approved

February, 2014

We are thrilled to announce that a new MFTD Waiver was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)! The new program is nearly identical to the previous program. All of the troubling issues, such as income caps, cost sharing, personal attendant use, and level of care reductions, have been resolved. We are very appreciative to both CMS and Illinois' Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) for creating a safe and fair program that allows our children to remain at home!
