- Expedited Waiver Eligibility - Some home- and community-based services providers are currently able to complete an expedited Medicaid and Aged and Disabled waiver application for Hoosiers who fit certain criteria. The goal of this pilot program is for home-based services to start within 10 days of approval. Expediting the eligibility process is intended to help more Hoosiers receive the services they need in their homes instead of needing to move into a nursing facility.
