Covered Services

The SCL and MPW waivers provide services traditional Medicaid does not cover to adults and children with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Services include behavior supports, personal assistance/community living supports, and residential support services (SCL only). SCL and MPW services help individuals live in the community as independently as possible. 

An SCL service provider must meet the coverage provisions and requirements in 907 KAR 12:010  and 907 KAR 12:020. An MPW service provider must meet the coverage provisions and requirements in 907 KAR 1:835. Services must be performed within the scope of practice for any provider. Listing of services in an administrative regulation is not a guarantee of payment. Providers must follow all relevant state Medicaid regulations. All services must be medically necessary.
