#Waiverwise: Transportation

Waiver services should be person centered. You will create a Service Plan within the budget limit ( $16,545 annually for FSW). There is more information available on this process in the waiver manual.

Transportation

Transportation services (as specified in the FSW) enable waiver participants to gain access to any non-medical community services, resources/destinations, or places of employment, maintain or improve their mobility within the community, increase independence and community participation, and prevent institutionalization as specified by the ISP and POC. 


Reimbursable activities under Transportation services (as specified in the FSW) include the following: 
 Two one-way trips per day to or from a non-medical community service, resource or place of employment as specified on the ISP and provided by an approved provider of Residential Habilitation and Support, Community-Based Habilitation, Facility-Based Habilitation, Adult Day Services, or Transportation services. 
 Bus passes or alternate methods of transportation may be utilized.

 May be used in conjunction with other services, including Community-Based Habilitation, Facility-Based Habilitation, and Adult Day Services

 Whenever possible, family, neighbors, friends, or community agencies that can provide this service without charge will be utilized.

Transportation services (as specified in the FSW) may not be used to meet medical transportation needs already available under the Indiana Medicaid State Plan.
