ID / RD 



To qualify for Intellectual Disability/Related Disabilities (ID/RD) Waiver services, a person must:

  • have a diagnosis of intellectual disability or related disability which includes autism
  • be Medicaid eligible
  • be given the option of receiving services in his/her home and community or in an Intermediate Care Facility for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/ID)
  • require the degree of care that would be provided in the ICF/ID (meet ICF/ID level of care)
  • have needs that can be met by the provision of services funded by the waiver
  • Federal Law requires that the cost of Medicaid Waiver and State Plan services must be less expensive than or equal to the cost of institutional care


ID/RD Waiver services will be terminated when a person:

  • voluntarily withdraws or no longer wishes to receive services funded by the Waiver
  • no longer meets ICF/ID level of care
  • is no longer eligible for Medicaid as determined by the SC Department of Health and Human Services
  • is admitted to an ICF/ID
  • receives no Waiver services for 30 days
    (Note: In certain circumstances, a person's waiver slot can be held for 90 days.)
  • moves out of state
