Understand Funding

Missouri ISL’s are funded through receipt of a comprehensive waiver.

To be eligible for the Comprehensive Waiver an individual must:

  • Be eligible for Medicaid (otherwise known as MO Health Net) as determined by Family Support Division (FSD) under an eligibility category that provides for Federal Financial Participation (FFP).
  • Be determined by the Regional Office to have a developmental disability as defined by Section 630.00-5(9), RSMO, (1994 – see above).
  • Be determined by the Regional Office initially and annually thereafter to require an ICF/IDD level of care.
