Community Waiver includes a comprehensive array of services including residential, employment and habilitation services and supports for individuals 3 years of age or older.

In-Home Supports Waivers (IHSW) allow individuals and families to select services necessary for each individual to remain in his or her own home or family home. Individuals on the IHSW are assigned to Developmental Disabilities Services (DDS) case managers to assist them in locating, securing, and coordinating needed services.
Eligible children, ages 3 through 17, may receive needed services through the IHSW-Children. Eligible adults, 18 years or older, may receive needed services through the IHSW-Adult. These waivers are not cash payment programs and all services are provided through agencies contracting with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.
