Childrens Waiver

Louisiana Children’s Choice is a Medicaid Home and Community-based Services waiver that is designed to provide supplemental support services to children with disabilities who currently live at home with their families or will leave an institutional setting to return home.

This waiver is unique in that it allows recipients between the ages of birth through 18 years of age to receive a specified monetary amount annually in support services. Louisiana Children’s Choice is an optional service that will be offered to as many children as funding allows.

Families of children on the current Bureau of Community Supports and Services (BCSS) Registry, which includes the former MR/DD Waiver waiting list, will choose to either apply for Louisiana Children’s Choice or remain on the Request for Services Registry.
