Elderly or Disabled Consumer Directed (EDCD) Waiver Services

The Elderly or Disabled Consumer Directed (EDCD) Waiver benefit provides comprehensive and preventive health care services for the elderly who are enrolled in Medicaid.  EDCD waiver originates from four different possible sources: acute care hospitals, nursing facilities, the local department of social services (LDSS) or the local health department (LHD) in the locality where the individual resides. DMAS’s service authorization contractor performs service authorizations prior to the services being provided. Providers of service may be an agency, adult day health care, partnership, corporation, or association that meets the standards and requirements set forth by DMAS and has a current, signed contract with DMAS to be a provider of waiver services.
