Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) are Medicaid programs that give you more choices about how and where you receive services. HCBS are for people with disabilities and older Iowans who require services to allow them to stay in their homes and communities rather than transitioning to an institution.
View available HCBS supports and services on our Medicaid Programs page.
In addition to HCBS waiver services, waiver-enrolled members have access to Medicaid covered services and benefits. Medicaid covers a broad array of health services, in addition to the services provided by the waiver, and limits out-of-pocket costs.
