The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH), Bureau of Health Services Financing and the Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) currently provide home and community-based services through the Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) Waiver to eligible Medicaid participants.

The Department hereby gives public notice of its intent to submit an application for waiver renewal to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in order to continue services in the ADHC Waiver. Renewal of the waiver is contingent upon CMS approval.

In compliance with CMS requirements, the Department is posting the ADHC Waiver renewal application (LA.0121.08.00) for public comment from December 10, 2021 through January 10, 2022. CMS regulations require LDH to actively engage the public and give program participants, advocates, providers and other community stakeholders the opportunity to provide input regarding changes made to current waiver applications prior to submission of final versions to CMS.
