Innovations waiver funding:
- Medicaid Innovations waiver recipients and their natural support system (family, caregivers, etc.) are eligible for funding assistance via the waiver to attend the conference. Natural Supports Education Funds is available to all primary caregivers of individuals who receive Innovation Waiver services.
- This service will pay for enrollment fees and materials, up to $1,000 for the individual’s Plan Year, to enable the primary caregiver to attend educational events such as the conference. This funding can pay for the registration cost of the conference, but will not pay for transportation costs to go to/from the conference, any lodging costs, or meals that are not provided by the conference host (dinner).
If you have a loved one who has waiver funding and want to request/use Natural Supports Education, contact your care coordinator at your managed care organization (MCO) and let them know that you wish to use Natural Supports Education funds for your conference expenses. Download the conference registration form and send it to your MCO and ask them to send the form and authorization paperwork or payment to ASNC. However, some MCOs require families to pay for their registrations and will reimburse the family. If you or your care coordinator have questions, please call 919-865-5063 or email us for help.
