Assistive technology (AT) is a critical service among long term services and supports (LTSS) to give persons with disabilities an option to institutional care. Medicaid Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) waivers are one important resource for provision of AT. This webinar will provide an overview of HCBS waivers, how the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is giving states the opportunity to provide additional HCBS services and supports, and how Assistive Technology Act programs are involved with their state’s HCBS waivers and other LTSS.

After the webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the purpose and kinds of services that can be provided through HCBS waivers and the waiver process.
  • Be aware of the types of activities states have included in their spending plans under the increase in dollars for HCBS provided through the ARPA.
  • Understand the kinds of activities state AT programs can undertake to improve access to AT in their HCBS and related LTSS.
