Consumer Directed Option (CDO) Medicaid Waiver Program
The Consumer Directed Option (CDO) Medicaid waiver program provides services for those eligible for the Home and Community Based Waiver and the Michelle P Waiver. Potential members are required to meet eligibility criteria established in Kentucky Administrative Regulations (KAR) for Medicaid waiver services. This program allows the individual to choose who provides their non medical waiver services. This choice gives members flexibility in the delivery of services they receive by placing the waiver participant in charge of directing services and managing a monthly budget. The Home and Community Based Waiver can provide attendant care, homemaking, personal care, unskilled respite, goods and services, and support brokerage. The Michelle P Waiver can provide unskilled respite, homemaker, personal care, attendant care, supported employment, community living support, goods and services, and support brokerage. Eligibility for specific services is determined by the Department for Medicaid Services and is based on waiver criteria.
